Pumpkin and Sausage Pasta

It’s officially the last day of summer today. Tomorrow ushers in fall…..and I have to admit, I’m excited. Once fall hits…………the magic of a season full of holidays, traditions, and family kicks in.


And last night, the weather was just right to re-introduce the flavor of pumpkin. And yes, he is only welcome during the fall and winter months. There’s something cozy about him.


A friend of mine told me about a pumpkin and sausage recipe from Rachel Ray, so I was on the hunt to find it.


And I’m so glad I did.



Find the recipe from Rachel Ray here.


The only thing I did differently was substituted the white wine for chicken broth with a tablespoon of white vinegar. (I didn’t have any wine, and I read about the broth and vinegar as a substitute online.)


We served this with some squash and it was just perfect. Oh yum.


Be ready for some other fall ideas this week.

    I am making lots of yummy noises – so delicious. Thanks for the wine substitute tip – I don't cook with wine either (or in your case whine – LOL) I'll have to make these soon:)

    Oooh, thanks Jen. I just fixed that. Though, I'm sure there was a lot of "whine"-ing at my feet while I was cooking that meal. Little ones always seem to need attention while dinner is being prepared. Bless them!! :)
