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.

    Never heard about broth and vinegar substitute before, thanks for posting that!

  7. Ashley says:

    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!! :)
