Wow, we just adore Nicole!  She is so inspiring and so much fun in the kitchen.  I am so excited she joined us on #LunchBreakLIVE and shared this incredible Fall recipe with us.

Pumpkin Pasta Sauce with a Side of Penne!

This is the perfect Fall recipe!  Warm and savory with that pumpkin and sage flavor we crave this time of year.  I have never had a pumpkin pasta sauce but I must say it looks and sounds delicious.  I bet the aroma is awesome too.  And topped with beautiful pomegranate seeds, what a stunning dish.  I am going to provide the recipe below for this meal and I hope you give it a try.  Nicole is super creative in the kitchen and her recipes are always amazing!  If you are looking for other vegan recipes to cook up this Fall be sure to check out our archives.  We have so many to choose from.
