This Brown Butter Pumpkin Sauce over Zucchini Linguine & Grilled Chicken is a delicious & healthy ‘pasta’ dish that uses a few of my favorite things!
Pumpkin, the inspiralizer, fresh herbs, and grilled chicken make up this delicious Fall dinner that will be a hit night after night.
In other news, Halloween is on the horizon! I’m still deciding what to dress Jax (the pup) up as. It’s kind of silly to get him a costume, but I feel like it’s a must. I’ll be browsing the internet looking for dog costumes while devouring bowls of this deliciousness.
You can use original almond milk, or vanilla. Whatever you have on hand!
