Pumpkin Roundup #4: Dinner

This roundup of pumpkin recipes is all about dinner.  Pumpkin is a very versatile food and can add flavor to any meal.  Hopefully, these recipes will inspire you to use pumpkin for dinner.

Pumpkin Ravioli with Brown Butter Sauce

 The ravioli filling is made with pumpkin, spices and ricotta cheese.  And the beautiful sauce has rosemary, Parmesan cheese and pecans.  This recipe from Cupcake Project, is simple enough that a toddler can make it.

Baked Chicken with Pumpkin Rice

I thought the idea of pumpkin rice was new and interesting.  What meat eater doesn’t enjoy juicy chicken?!  This recipe, found at Weary Chef, promises just that.  The chicken is baked with the pumpkin rice.  The rice is flavored with chicken broth, whipping cream and, of course, pumpkin.

Pumpkin and Kale Lasagna

This recipe is a great vegetarian option.  I love kale, so that makes it even better.  The lasagna is spicy, which isn’t my cup of tea.  But it has a surprising ingredient:  couscous.  Wow.  And there are three cheeses.  This lasagna, from Foxes Love Lemons, appears to be packed with pumpkin and lots of flavor.

All of these recipes incorporate the fall favorite of pumpkin.  And they are all comfort food recipes.  So have some pumpkin for dinner.

Which of these dinners are you ready to eat?
