Make-Ahead, Freezer-Friendly Pasta with Sausage & Pumpkin-Cream Sauce

Pasta with Pumpkin Sauce and Sausage Sometimes...awkard things just happen. And over dinner the other night, Eric and I were reflecting about these moments…when your interaction just takes a turn for the weird. Our conversation started with a mishap Eric had last week as he was walking into the parking garage after work. Apparently he’d had his head turned around while holding a door for a fellow walker and then proceeded to basically T-bone a parked car at full walking speed.

I may have laughed so hard that water came out of my nose. (Also, I would pay like $500 to have that security camera footage.)

Once I stopped laughing and got my breath back, I responded by asking…”Did I tell you about what happened in church last Sunday?”

Somehow, I hadn’t.

Here’s how it went down.
