I promise you I'll slow down with the autumn inspired recipe deluge soon...but not yet 😎! Next up, one pot spicy sausage pumpkin pasta.
It's all done in ONE pot! Even the pasta! No pre-cooking, no boiling water, nothing. All. In. One.
Can you tell I'm obsessed with the one pot thing?
In case you can't, this is actually an autumn twist on one of my favorite recipes, one pot sausage spinach pasta. A seasonal twist on an easy peezy, filling, flavorful, perfect for a weeknight dinner dish.
Some new additions:
Pumpkin puree. Can't have one pot spicy sausage pumpkin pasta without it! And yes, cinnamon and nutmeg do make an appearance but this dish is definitely a savory pumpkin recipe so not to worry! No dessert pasta with sausage (hard pass) here.
Also, I switched out the mild Italian sausage with it's spicy cousin and added some chili pepper flakes to up the savory flavor ante and stay away from anything sweet.
Finally, I used a medium shell pasta instead of penne. With the pumpkin puree addition, it holds the saucy sausage filling a little better than a straight tubular pasta does.
Get your autumn on with some one pot spicy sausage pumpkin pasta, recipe coming up 👊🏻.Print
