I love fall and all of the yummy recipes that make this season so much fun! Sage is one of those herbs that is just perfect paired with pumpkin. And this recipe has a ton of garlic and who doesn’t love the smell of garlic and butter whafting throughout the house? This recipe could not have been simpler and easy to prepare and put together in a snap. I paired this dish with a Pinot Grigio and it was perfect!
