A long time coming

Two words for you, my friends. Canned Pumpkin.

I'm sure there are more words I could give you, but these are the vital ones. Here are a few more: Sausage, Sage, Cream, Broth, Penne Rigate. Amazing. Outstanding. Delicious. I've been thinking about this recipe for ages. Since June, when I had a chance to make it but missed out because of a random babysitting job.

This is an awesome recipe and it totally goes along with my pumpkin obsession.
Here are a few fun facts about me: I don't really like all things pork related. I mean, I really really like bacon. I'm not 100% in love with most other pig products, although I will try them, obviously. I'm coming around to sausage, in no small part because of this recipe. Browned sweet italian sausage, onion, garlic, sage, chicken broth, and canned pumpkin. Tossed with whole-wheat penne. Basically, it was intense. I even had seconds. Topped with tons of grated parmesan. Even cold, it's delish. Make this recipe. Check it:


  1. Soooooooooooooo good.

  2. looks like i found saturday night's meal! any drink suggestions? sounds like beer or something red might be good. well, heck, red wine is good with everything from cheerio's to cheese, isn't it?

  3. Fun facts: you are supposed to cook this with white wine. Therefore, I would assume a white. But red is good with anything and as long as the beer isn't too dark it would also be fab. Basically.... just drink!!! :)

  4. I've been looking for a good way to do pumpkin pasta. Never thought of using canned pumpkin, but now that you point it out...

    I guess this is why Rachel Ray is a celebrity, and I am still a frustrated law student. :P
