Penne With Sausage, Pumpkin and Fennel
There’s no denying it, this fall I am on a pumpkin kick. I have loved everything pumpkin from candles to pumpkin bread to well…this amazing pumpkin pasta recipe. I had planned to make a stuffed butternut squash recipe (and I’m still going to), but I changed my mind at the last minute on Sunday night and made this instead. I served it by the fire with a simple salad with a fig balsamic vinaigrette and it was so delicious! I promise this is the easiest recipe ever because you cook everything in the same pot and you use canned pumpkin. The pictures really don’t do it justice…it is creamy and delicious and the fennel gives it the most incredible flavor along with the sausage. I used andouille sausage, but you could use any kind you like. I made everything ahead and added the pasta at the last minute. I think this pasta is the quintessential fall comfort food recipe…it’s everything you think of when you think of comfort food - creamy, rich, and it just melts in your mouth. I hope you’ll make it and let me know what you think!
It finally fall and I’m hoping it will last more than a couple of weeks because the weather has been perfect! And for more amazing recipes, check out my Pinterest Yummy Food Board because I’ve been adding so many recipes that I want to make. Thanks so much for reading today…have a great Tuesday!
