There are two very exciting things to share with you today. First of all, Pumpkin Mac ‘n Cheese needs to find it’s way into your life instantly. Secondly, I am thrilled to share Calphalon Your Set with you. What does “Your Set” mean? Well my friends, the tough decisions of trying to find the perfect set of pans has now been solved. Calphalon has launched Your Set! The perfect way for you to customize your set of pots and pans to suit your fancy. And for me to suit mine.

In the wonderful world of cooking there is no one size fits all.

 

What might be your mom’s or your best friends favorite pan might not be yours. That’s OK. Now you can take charge and get exactly what you want. With Your Set, you get to choose from a selection of Calphalon Unison Nonstick pans (that is what is in my photos) or their Accucore Stainless Steel pans.

 

For this super quick mac ‘n cheese I didn’t want anything stuck to the bottom of the pan & I wanted to work really quickly. The nonstick pan was amazing for this. This meal came together with ease. There was only some residual oil left in the pan. All I needed was a damp cloth for clean up. The nonstick coating also allowed me to keep this recipe low fat.

You will be pleased how easy this pasta is to cook. Especially when you have little ones tugging at you for lunch or dinner. All you need is 5 ounces of cooked pasta. Gluten free, whole wheat, corn, quinoa, high protein…the choice is yours. Cook that pasta in a pot of lightly salted boiling water.

Have Your Set pan ready to go…what’s next is quick, simple and makes the whole dish come together. Heat your pan over medium high heat. My Calphalon 10″ nonstick Unison pan was the perfect choice for this (as it will be for omelettes and many things.) Add some pumpkin purée, creamy sour cream, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon and cheddar cheese. You will love that there is virtually no clean up too ~ as everything is cooked in this one pan.

This recipe will make the perfect Thanksgiving side dish. It’s also great for last minute lunches and dinners. Don’t forget to pack it in your lunchbox too!

    My favorite thing to cook? Too many things! I guess I like to cook anything that is simple and one pot. If I can’t throw a dozen ingredients in one pan and just mix them together, it’s too much work. 🙂

    It’s hard to pick a favorite. Lately I’ve been adding Dutch pancakes to the dinner rotation on a weekly basis. We love them with carmalized apples or blueberries and topped with maple syrup. Bacon or sausage on the side is great too. Dutch pancakes are a warm winter comfort meal!

    My family loves this pasta dish that I make regularly.. no recipe really, I just brown up cubed pancetta, then cook some diced chicken breast in the leftover fat, add smoked sun dried tomatoes, some baby spinach, a little white wine, some lemon juice and zest.. can thicken the “sauce” with a bit of chicken stock and cornstarch. season up with some fresh ground pepper, a pinch of salt and some chopped parsley. serve with fettucine (i like to use the lemon pepper flavor if i can get it)

  • Nicole-Lynn

    I absolutely LOVE Calphalon products. They have the best quality and last a lifetime. I think I’d use their Unison Nonstick-Slide 12″ Omelette Pan the most. But all of their pots and pans are essential for anyone who likes to cook a lot, like myself! I’m a newlywed and just bought my first home with my husband, so this would be very nice to win.

    Have a wonderful thanksgiving. Thanks for the recipe, too!

    I made this with dinner tonight. I didn’t have the cheddar cheese so I used a little less than a 1/4 cup of fat free ricotta cheese and it came out amazing. I am not a fan of ricotta cheese at all but with your recipes I have branched out so much with my cooking and ingredients. I had this with chicken I made and it was delish.
    Thank you again for such amazing recipes. I do find myself getting bored with “normal” everyday meals so I try and mix it up a bit. Tonight I made the chicken and added 2 tablespoons of thousand island dressing towards the end of the cooking and it browned up so nice. Tomorrow I am making the cinnamon cake and for breakfast on New Years Day the crepes. 🙂

      Hi Dawn!! Thanks so much for your sweet comment. It really thrills me when I can make people’s lives a whole lot tastier. Using ricotta was a smart idea and one I will certainly try. I always have some in the house ~ it ends up in so many recipes. I hope you have great success with the other recipes. Can’t wait to hear what you think 🙂 Happy New Year!
