Happy first day of autumn! Today we officially say goodbye to summer, our friend with all the tomatoes and corn and peaches. It’s always a sad farewell, but the promise of crisp air, colorful leaves, and comforting food makes the transition a little easier.

This roast chicken fusilli with garlic cream sauce is a great way to welcome fall into your life.

You start this recipe by searing some chicken breast in a pan, then putting that pan in the oven to roast the chicken until fully cooked. The best part about this? When you remove the chicken, you use that pan — full of browned bits and flavor — to make your garlic cream sauce.

Toss the cooked pasta, roast chicken, and cream sauce together; garnish with fresh basil and grated Parmesan, and you’ve got a comforting meal to ease the sting of summer’s end.
