I’m sad it’s the last day of September. September is my favorite month of the year and not just because it is my birthday month. September means the beginning of fall. Oklahoma summers can be scorching and fall weather is always a relief. In LA September means less crowded beaches and still plenty of sun. I loved this article from buzzfeed about why fall is the most delicious season. I mean seriously apples, pumpkin, caramel, cider, squash, roasting everything, whiskey and so much more. My drink of choice out is whiskey ginger so I am just celebrating fall all year long.
I really wanted to get on the full-blown pumpkin bandwagon and create my own pumpkin dish. I attempted a six-layer pumpkin dessert. Unfortunately it was a major fail! Oh well. I’m not giving up, but in the meantime I created a savory pumpkin dish! I get really excited when a dish comes out even better than I imagined. This is one of those dishes. This spicy pumpkin pasta combines flavor-packed italian sausage with sweet pumpkin for the perfect fall dish. Serves four or two really hungry people!
