I don't think anyone needs a national food holiday to convince them to eat a big, comforting bowl of pasta on a chilly fall evening, but hey — a little extra encouragement never hurts. If you're on the hunt for the perfect recipe to celebrate, this one, with a pumpkin-tomato sauce, ground turkey, and kale, should do the trick.
A mixture of sun-dried tomatoes, onion, garlic, sage, pumpkin purée, tomato purée, chicken broth, heavy cream, and herbs like basil and cinnamon, the sauce is definitely the most unique part of this recipe. You toss it with cooked spaghetti, sautéed kale, and browned, spiced turkey for a hearty, flavorful bowl of pasta that will keep you warm on cool nights.
Don't forget the Parmesan cheese!
