    Pumpkin and sausage are one of the combinations we love most in fall. And after all the combinations we’ve tried, this delicious pumpkin and sausage pasta was still something new to us. A tasty, flavorful first course dish, it’s sure to be a hit with the whole family. The sweet flavor of the pumpkin is the perfect pairing for the full savory flavor of the sausage, giving this pasta a wonderfully balanced taste. The pumpkin will fall apart as it cooks, turning into a delicious cream, jazzed up with the Parmigiano cheese, which will envelop the tortiglioni pasta and pull the dish together. This pumpkin and sausage pasta is a cinch to make – just follow our steps!
