Zucchini Noodles with Pumpkin Sauce

A creamy pumpkin curry sauce is tossed with zucchini noodles for a tasty meatless dish.

This dish combines two of my current obsessions: pumpkin and zucchini noodles. It’s light, easy and makes a great lunch.

I went a little pumpkin crazy this weekend. I shopped at Trader Joe’s and purchased nearly all of their pumpkin products. We also picked out our pumpkins to be carved. I’ve seen so many neighbors with their Halloween decorations up, so we need to catch up. One thing I am curious about though, are people really buying Christmas decorations? I’ve seen Christmas trees and decorations up at nearly every store since the beginning of October, but I don’t actually see anyone walking out with any Christmas decorations, just Halloween ones. But people must be buying them this early if they are already on the shelves right?

Personally, I’m not even thinking about Christmas yet. I’m still trying to figure out what design I want carved into my pumpkin this year. And what Halloween candy I’m going to buy. Kit Kats, Reese’s, and Twix are always a must-get for me. And usually some other kind of chocolate bar like Snickers, and a few fruit ones like Skittles and Sour Patch Kids. What are your favorite Halloween candies?

  1. How many servings (and of what size) does this recipe make? I hate leftovers and I’m only cooking for two.
