Cook: Jen G.
Menu: Pumpkin Pasta from La Dolce Vegan, Broccoli and Chocolate Chip Cookies from The Joy of Vegan Baking
I was feeling pretty uninspired until late in the afternoon...but this meal came together quite quickly and was really good. My partner initially eschewed the sauce ("I'm not a big pumpkin lover, remember?") but after tasting mine, went to the kitchen and got a big spoonful for his bowl of pasta. The sauce itself was fast and straightforward to make- a nice and light savory pumpkin flavor, with some faux sausage thrown in. I myself am a fan of the fake sausage, so that was a big plus.
For this meal, I threw in some broccoli (my favorite) for green balance, and the chocolate chip cookies because I had a desire for dessert.
