The carving of pumpkins, spicy aromas of roasted pumpkin-flavored coffees and a tease of pies to come, the pumpkin is the shining star this time of year. Typically these are the most popular ways to use pumpkin … but not the only ways. Pumpkin can be both savory as well as sweet. It is found in hearty soups, fondues and flans, and even pumpkin french fries! But have you ever tried pumpkin with pasta?
We made this for the family with a bit of hesitation. The combination is definitely different, especially for them. Judy and I looked around the table as each one put the fork to their mouth, waiting for their reactions....they loved it! It is soooo good … sometimes we even amaze ourselves and we definitely did this time!
