After eating Thanksgiving dinner for the past couple of days, I’m sure you can agree that an easy, fall inspired dinner is in order. Much like last weeks soup, I wanted to cook a meal that was full of undoubtably fall ingredients. I figured that something pumpkin flavoured would be the perfect choice. I took to the internet and found this recipe for Pumpkin Pasta and knew immediately I wanted to give it a go. My boyfriend and I love pasta but normally stick with tomato based sauces, so a pumpkin based sauce was a welcomed change. The recipe tasted very seasonally appropriate and uses few ingredients making it straight forward yet full of flavour. I added crumbled goat cheese on top of the almonds as I assumed they would pair well together with the pumpkin flavour giving it a salty element. And if I can have an excuse to use goat cheese (seen here, and here) you know I am taking it.
