Autumn has to be a chef’s favorite season.  Why?  Quite simply because it’s  “Harvest Time”!

Not only is it a beautiful time of the year, it also brings with it many ingredients that we definitely don’t see any other time of the year, especially pumpkins! Pumpkins are the “King of the Fall Harvest”!

As a chef, pumpkins are my number one choice to incorporate into Autumn menu-planning. These festive, orange “barrels of fun” help celebrate the changing of the season and connect wholeheartedly with the great positive energy autumn brings with it each year.

Tip: It’s a fact – Pumpkins are not only delicious and fun, but are also packed with fantastic  nutrients! So, this autumn incorporate pumpkin into your daily diet and begin to benefit from the healthy aspects of all pumpkins and gourds. Here in this post I share a delicious and quick pasta dish that not only contains pumpkin in the sauce, but also contains pumpkin in the actual dough. Therefore delivering a one-two punch of pumpkin goodness!
