Festa della Zucca  (A Celebration of winter squash) 

Let’s celebrate fall with all the varieties of winter squash that are growing in my garden.  I have Lunga di Napoli, butternut squash and honey butternut squash and they will be ready for us to harvest in early November.  I adore winter squash and in this class I will share with you some of my favorite Southern Italian dishes featuring these squash fresh from my garden.

Pasta con zucca e salsiccia  (Pasta with squash and Calabrian sausage)
