Taste & Create: sausage/squash pasta

for this month's Taste & Create event, i was partnered with abby of eat the right stuff. this food event pairs you with another food blogger and you just make a recipe from their blog, take pix and write about it. voila.

i chose the Chorizo & Butternut Squash with Penne dish. i heart squash. i heart chorizo. what a combo! however, my local Giant did not have chorizo, and i was not in the mood to hunt some down. i settled for the spicey Italian sausage instead. i hope it's ok!

i also used angel hair pasta instead of penne. i have quite an inventory of pasta at home already and i thought had some penne. no dice. great. two rules broken right off the bat.

regardless, the dish was delish. the combo of the sausage and squash is phen-nom! i had two bowls. oink oink much? the dash of lemon juice added something extra and the parsley made it all seem brighter. i made my roommate have some (again, this happens when you live with me!) and she enjoyed it too.

the rules say that this has to be done by the 24th, which is a week away but i have two other food events to focus on and a bday custard request, as well as a hippo to crochet. i hope it's ok that i'm posting so early.

  4. Yes I did use a pattern from a past issue of a Crochet magazine for the bears. Would you like for me to email the pattern to you with pictures? I would be happy too. :) Just let me know: msloyola at g mail dot com

  6. That looks delicious, what a fun idea. I often think about all the recipes floating around in blogdom but aren't being used because so many want to stand out on their own. I'm all about sharin' the love!

    I love B-nut squash too, I have a soup recipe that you'd love. Yay for autumn.
