- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 yellow onion, finely chopped

- 1 tablespoon adobo sauce
- 1 cup canned pumpkin
- 1-1/2 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 box (12 ounces) ZENB Penne Pasta made from 100% Yellow Peas, uncooked
- 1/4 cup 2% milk
- 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Heat oil in large pot on medium-high heat. Add onion; cook 5-7 minutes until translucent. Add garlic; cook 30 seconds stirring continuously until fragrant. Stir in adobo sauce, pumpkin, broth and salt; bring mixture to a low boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes2.
Meanwhile, cook ZENB Pasta as directed on package. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta cooking water; drain.3.
Whisk milk into pumpkin sauce. Add pasta and reserved pasta water to pot. Cook 3 minutes, until heated through and well combined. Garnish with Parmesan and pepper before serving.
Canned chipotle peppers are sold packed in adobo sauce. Look for chipotle peppers in adobo in the Mexican section of the grocery store. Wrap leftover chipotle peppers individually in plastic wrap before storing in the freezer.
For an extra kick of heat, add 2 minced chipotle peppers in addition to the adobo.
