This week, whether you are celebrating Thanksgiving or appreciating what’s left of Autumn, we’d like to share this fantastic fall recipe with all you foodies out there.
-8 oz pumpkin
-8 oz ricota
-salt to taste
Start with a cut pumpkin and bring to a boil until tender to the touch.
In a mixer or by hand, mix in ricotta, flour, brown sugar, and allspice.
Keep mixing while gradually adding flour until manageable by hand.
Migrate the ball of dough onto a floured surface and kneed until medium firm.
Roll into strips of about half inch diameter (like rolling play-dough “snakes”).
Cut into small half inch pieces or size desired. For additional fanciness you can roll each piece on a whisk or fork for perfect lines.
Boil in salted water, and when they float they are done.

And if you’re of age, finish off your day with a Fantastic Fall Bourbon Spice Cocktail.
