Since I started blogging over two years ago, I think I’ve come a long way. I’ve still got a ways to go in comparison to some of my inspirations out there, but I don’t mind admitting that I think my own photography and recipe writing skills have naturally improved as I’ve put in more effort. So it remains that some of my favorite recipes out there just don’t look as good as they really are, or just aren’t written very well, to the point where it makes them a bit difficult to share. One such recipe is for my Pumpkin Penne.
I created this recipe in August 2008, no doubt while I was lusting for fall in the middle of summer. It was, I think, my first attempt at cooking with cottage cheese, and I was damn proud of it. (Since then, I’ve learned to use low-fat, protein-packed cottage cheese in so many deliciously unexpected ways!) Since then, this recipe has been a favorite in our household. But in addition, it’s probably one of the top few recipes that friends and family tell me they make from my blog and enjoy. So, I decided Pumpkin Penne really deserved a photo and recipe makeover. It’s been so good to me, it was time to reciprocate!
