It finally feels like fall! Fall means fall food which is just about the most homey and comforting food there is. I turn to butternut squash, homemade pasta, hearty sauces, and bolder cuts of meat. Roasting butternut squash releases it’s natural sugar. It balance this out, it is important to layer on other flavors. In this recipe I used rosemary, thyme, and pumpkin seeds. I also recommend cayenne pepper.
