Pumpkin Pesto Pasta
This year I decided my carving pumpkin would be a pie pumpkin so I could make puree and try something crazy. Add apples and nutmeg and you get a buttery sweet coating for pasta. Use the roasted seeds in a dollop of garlic pesto on top, and crumble goat cheese. Of course it all gets mixed together while eating, and that sweet pumpkin mixed with its salty seeds makes an interesting autumnal meal.
