Feed The Resistance: Pasta & Savory Pumpkin Sauce w/ O’Fallon Pumpkin Beer!

Summer is too quickly coming to an end…but there’s good news that comes with that!  With the coming of fall, we get Badger & Packer Football, good hearty food, and great fall beers to wash down that food!

When I was told that this week’s Tap That beer of the week is a pumpkin beer from O’Fallon, I started looking for some of those good, hearty fall recipes.  What I found was a recipe for “Pumpkin Butter” in an old issue of Food & Wine Magazine.  Along with the recipe for the pumpkin butter, there were suggestions on how to serve it.  One of those suggestions was to mix it with brown butter, sage and crushed pepper to make a savory pumpkin pasta sauce.  Unfortunately, it didn’t say how much sage, brown butter or crushed pepper to use – so I just winged it.  And it turned out GREAT…and paired very nicely with the O’Fallon Pumpkin Beer!
