There's nothing more comforting on a chilly fall day than to come home and enjoy a warm bowl of freshly made soup. Here are some great pumpkin soup recipes.

Pumpkin Soup and Pesto Toast

This recipe comes from a blog by the title of a Little Family Adventure. Nikki the writer of the blog has shared it as a meatless Monday night meal. We think that it can be enjoyed anytime but is also a great budget-friendly comfort food. What's even better is it comes with a side dish of bread that has a yummy pesto spread.

Southwest Pumpkin Soup

This is more than the typical smooth purée that you expect from a myriad of single vegetable soups. This is pumpkin soup with a Tex-Mex flair and almost eats like chili.


Another comfort food that many Americans love to enjoy on a chilly night, or after a long day as they enjoy settling in at home. Here are some pasta recipes using pumpkin to give them a fall twist.

Shrimp Pumpkin Alfredo

When people think shrimp they don't often think of pairing it with pumpkin but they come together great for a comforting Alfredo recipe. And we here in Maryland love to enjoy some seafood. It may not be a crabcake but it might come in as a good second.

Creamy Pumpkin Pasta

This is more of a pasta sauce recipe than an entire pasta meal. You can put the sauce on your favorite noodles or maybe even find some more creative uses for it. It produces a very pleasant savory pumpkin aroma that will fill your whole home as well bringing fall comfort to your entire space.
