Hopefully you’ve already heard the great news, because you follow me on Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, Twitter and are subscribed to my newsletter. Right?

If you aren’t, let me be first to tell you.

Pumpkin-Sage Alfredo Carrot Pasta with Crispy Pancetta Recipe

The Inspiralizer® is now available on Williams-Sonoma.com! Don’t believe me? Click here, it’s real!

And to reiterate, you cannot find the Inspiralizer on Amazon – it’s only available on Inspiralized.com and now, Williams-Sonoma.com. How cool!

We found out early Thursday morning that the Inspiralizer had hit the website and it totally made my day, week, month and year. I was absolutely humbled, thrilled and proud to see my product up on their site.

I grew up following my mother around the mall (like any respectable Jersey girl does) and I was always excited when we’d walk into Williams Sonoma, seeing all the shiny kitchen tools and the delicious holiday peppermint bark. I couldn’t wait to “grow up” and have my own kitchen with shiny things in it.

Every star in the sky has aligned, and I couldn’t be happier. Now, if you are a bride making their registry, add the Inspiralizer (and the cookbook, of course.) If you’re doing some holiday shopping, make sure to snag it before it goes out of stock! If you have a gift card to use, now’s the time! Is your birthday coming up? Treat yoself.

Thank you in advance to everyone who purchases the Inspiralizer at Williams Sonoma, I hope we sell out and they eventually put the Inspiralizer in stores! *fingers crossed*

Pumpkin-Sage Alfredo Carrot Pasta with Crispy Pancetta Recipe

Now on to this recipe – talk about colorful! The carrot noodles and the orange pumpkin alfredo are certainly bright. What does that mean? ​Orange fruits and veggies are jam-packed with ​beta carotene​, which experts say​ ​great for eye health ​and can even delay cognitive aging and protect ​your gorgeous ​skin from sun damage. They also have high amounts of Vitamin C (think: oranges), which helps you boost your immune system.

Plus, this recipe is easy to make, it’s made with real ingredients AND it’s a great way to enjoy seasonal produce, like pumpkins! They’re not just for carving…

Also, if you can’t find carrots large enough to spiralize, just sub in butternut squash or sweet potato! Heck, zucchini will even work here…

  • 3-4 large carrots, peeled, Blade D, noodles trimmed
  • 4oz pancetta, diced
  • 2 sage leaves
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallots
  • 2 small garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1 15oz can pumpkin puree
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 15oz can full-fat coconut milk, refrigerated overnight
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley, to garnish


  1. Bring a medium pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Once boiling, add in the carrot noodles and let cook 2-3 minutes or until al dente. Drain noodles into a colander and set aside.
  2. Place a large skillet over medium heat and add in the ham. Let cook for 5-7 minutes or until ham is cooked and starts to turn crispy. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.
  3. Immediately place in the sage, shallots, garlic and red pepper flakes and stir frequently, careful not to burn the garlic. If needed, let the skillet cool first. Cook for 30 seconds or until fragrant and then add in the pumpkin and season with salt and pepper. Let cook for 2-3 minutes or until warmed through and then add in the coconut cream from the coconut milk can (the solids only off the top) and nutmeg. Stir to combine and cook for 5 minutes more to absorb the flavors.
  4. Divide the carrot pasta into bowls and top with pumpkin sauce and ham. Garnish with parsley.

This looks great and lets me enjoy a wheat and dairy free treat. Is the nutritional info coming?
Ali Maffucci says:
The nutritional information is there, you may have missed it!
Wendy B. says:
Thanks so much for including the Weight Watcher points! This will definitely inspire me to try more recipes.
foodgirldc says:
Which pumpkin puree did you use?
Lois Krieger says:
What can you substitute for the coconut cream? Sour cream? How much?
karen says:
what do you suggest subbing for the coconut cream? thanks!
annie says:
Looks like something I would love to try for Thanksgiving ! And thanks for the WW point value :)
Jamie says:
Hi! Can you use heavy cream, greek yogurt, or something else in lieu of the coconut cream? Thanks!
Leah says:
If I want to make this recipe same day, can I freeze the coconut milk? Or is most of the day in the fridge okay? I love your recipes and I am obsessed with the spiralizer!! I've gotten so many people hooked!!! xoxo
Amanda says:
Thank you for the WW points; this has made my day!!
Susan says:
I'm planning on making this one next week, but I'm a bit confused - cant I just use a can of coconut cream? How much should I put in? I use powdered coconut milk/cream mix because I got really sick of wasting the dregs of the cans!
Bonnie says:
This looks so good. I will be making this. I have to disagree with your statement that it is not sold on Amazon. I checked Williams-Sonoma site and it's $50 to buy one there. I went to Amazon, because I knew I've seen it there and it's there plus the inspiralizer light is also there. Prices on Amazon are $ 35 and $25 respectively. That's a lot better than $50 on Williams-Sonoma.
Meaghan says:
Hi, Bonnie - this is an old recipe - published back on November 8, 2015. This post was published prior to the Inspiralizer going on sale through Amazon and other retailers. Prices have also changed since then.
Bonnie says:
Oh, ok. That makes sense. I just wish I would've seen this one before I bought the one I have. When it either breaks or I get sick and tired of trying to make it work on the harder veggies, I will be getting one of these.

you know what keeps me up at night? 🥺 the gut-wrenching mom guilt from worrying that this time is going to fly by (it is!) and I’m going to look back and wish I had made more one on one time with each my kids when they wanted it! it’s so hard to separate my time, and I’ll admit that I’m not great at finding ways and the right moments to do it. mamas out there who have 2 or more, what do you do to get more individual time with each of your kids?

maybe I’m putting too much pressure of myself in this season of life, but I can’t help feeling like I’m failing and I’m missing out on this adorable age! #proofofmom #motherhood #thisismotherhood #toddlermom

turned up my Broccoli & Cheddar Egg Donuts with some everything bagel seasoning, and it's a totally new recipe 🥯 🧀 you can grab this original recipe on the blog - just add a generous amount of EB seasoning to them! great for an on-the-go breakfast, packable kids lunch, or just a protein packed snack!  🥚
