    LizP's Note:

    I saw Rachael Ray make something very similar to this, but I thought it was a little labor intensive and heavy looking. However, the idea of the flavors intrigued me, so I played around and came up with this version. It is so delicious and creamy and the entire family just loved it.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place a large pot of salted water over high heat to boil. When water is boiling, drop tortellini and cook according to package directions. Drain cooked tortellini and reserve.
    2. 2
      Melt the butter, add the onion and garlic, and season with salt and pepper. Sauté until the onions soften.
    3. 3
      Stir in flour and cook about a minute. Whisk in the milk and cook until the liquid comes up to a bubble and the sauce thickens, 2-3 minutes.
    4. 4
      Stir in the nutmeg and pumpkin. Season with salt and pepper and simmer until thickened, about 1 minute. I found I needed quite a bit of salt.
    5. 5
      Toss the tortellini with the pumpkin sauce and transfer to a casserole dish. Cover with cheese and broil until cheese is browned.

      This is a definite keeper. It had a lot of flavor, although I used the canned pumpkin pie mix instead of plain pumpkin which enhanced the dish. We also served it with butternut squash ravioli opposed to tortellini. Made for My Three Chefs 2009.
