Creamy Harvest Pasta Sauce

Although fall isn’t officially here, it’s just around the corner. I used to be someone who mourned summer for most of the fall months, but over the past few years I’ve come to enjoy the changing of the seasons.  I’m not going crazy over here, but I definitely have a fall-scented candle burning in the background as I type. What I’m most looking forward to this season is the autumn-inspired dishes, like squash soup, pumpkin tarts, and this Harvest Bow Tie Pasta. I’ll definitely be serving this up all season long.

As usual, substitutions are totally welcome. Do what you gotta do! Enjoy.
