Pasta makes my family happy. Very happy. So last night we had spag bog. While the sauce was simmering, I whipped up a batch of pumpkin gnocchi with some dying pumpkin for tonight. I was a but heavy handed with the flour and the gnocchi was crap not up to its usual standard. The sauce, also concocted out of things that had to be used, was a winner.

- When bacon has rendered most of it’s fat, add sage leaves.
