Pumpkin Mac and Cheese with Linguica

pumpkin mac and cheese with linguica

When I first made Smoked Gouda and Pumpkin Mac and Cheese, my friends went crazy for it. And not just because we’re all obsessed with pumpkin at this time of year. My friends could not get enough of this creamy cheesy perfect comfort food.

By friends, I mean real life friends and co-workers who actually ate the mac and cheese, AND my invisible internet friends, thanks to Pinterest and Instagram. Well, it’s been two years and I figured it’s time for an update. I took the base of this creamy, tangy, orange and bright mac and cheese and changed up the smoke levels by adding linguica sausage. So Pumpkin Mac and Cheese with Linguica was born.
