It’s Pumpkin Day

Pasta in Pumpkin Sauce

This time of year I know when most people think of pumpkins they think of Jack o Lanterns. Me? I think of soup, pasta sauce, cake, cookies, pie. I do love my pumpkin in both sweet and savory dishes.

If you have never tired fresh pumpkin consider buying a pie pumpkin (they are smaller) and give it a try.
Never cleaned and cooked a pumpkin? Check out Time to Kill the Fatted Pumpkin for step by step instructions.

Have you ever used pumpkin in a savory dish?  Here are a few of my favorites:

Rotini in Pumpkin Sauce

Pumpkin Quinoa Pilaf with Bacon

Pumpkin is a wonderful healthy ingredient that can give a nutrition and flavor to many different types of dishes.  Of course pumpkin pie is good, but maybe this year you could branch out a bit?
