Fall is almost upon us but I am not done with summer yet. At least until I don’t see snow I am good.

    Hmm, fall pasta? Something hearty, probably tomato sauce based, with big hunks of italian sausage, mushrooms, garlic, bell peppers (all colors), over a spagetti pasta. Or just go directly to big pan of lasagna!
