For a nice pasta dish with fall flavors, try the recipe below, which incorporates butternut squash and kale.
This gets a flavor boost from a few slices of bacon, but the bacon can be skipped to make it vegetarian.
If skipping the bacon, you might want to use a little more lemon juice and Parmesan to replace the lost flavor.
