Pasta with Pumpkin Cream Sauce
Time for November’s Random Recipe entry! This month Dom at Belleau Kitchen switched things up this month by having us use our birthday to pick the cookbook, instead of a random number. For me this meant the 7th book on my shelf was the lucky winner, Vegetables from an Italian Garden.
I got this book last year and it has quickly become one of my favorites, especially since the first section of it is a planting guide for the vegetables featured in the book. For the winning recipe, Joe picked page 257 which was a picture of a very large pumpkin. The opposite page gave a full description of pumpkins, including the pages to flip to for pumpkin recipes (304-315). I went to the first page of recipes and settled on Crema Alla Zucca – Pumpkin Cream Sauce. The first time I made this recipe, things went wrong along the way and I had to change up dinner plans. The second time around I made more than a few changes while keeping the basic integrity of the dish for much better, read: edible, results!
This time the recipe worked MUCH better! I’m not sure what changes made it work, since I did make more than a few changes. Make sure to head over the Bellaeu Kitchen for more amazing Random Recipes!
I’m also sending this recipe over the /52weeks since there isn’t any thing more “Harvest” than pumpkin, especially this time of year. Plus, this recipe is a great way to use up any extra pumpkin, be it canned or fresh.
