Rigatoni with Sweet Turkey Sausage and Creamy Pumpkin Sauce

Do you ever think about how differently you eat depending on the season? Sure, it’s partly because of seasonal produce, but the temperature outside, and the family schedule also has a lot to do with what goes on our plates at different times of the year.
