Fall Pumpkin Pasta Recipe

I’m a big of fan of fall – fall leaves, blanket scarves and pumpkin! While I am not a  pumpkin spice latte kind of girl, I do love baking with pumpkin during the fall. However, I wanted to try using pumpkin in a savoury dish so I experimented making a pumpkin pasta sauce. I made this pumpkin pasta on a whim as I had lots of leftover ingredients in my fridge I needed to use up!

Oatbox July Review

I was very excited to receive my July Oatbox as I missed receiving my granola in the mail the past few months. I skipped my May and June Oatboxes due to allergies and the flavour options. The skipping process was very simple and can be done online.  The two July granola blends were Mango & White Chocolate Granola and Almond Crunch & Millet Granola. I use granola in a variety of ways such as on top of yogurt or a smoothie bowl, alone as a snack or even in baking as I did this month in Mango Muffins!

Oatbox January Review

I received my first Oatbox last month and have been super happy with the granola I received and was excited to try out two new flavours. Granola and yogurt is one of my favourite breakfasts or snack. I am also a big fan of eating granola by the handful! 

OatBox sends out two 380g bags of granola in their two monthly featured flavours each month. It costs $20 a month, including taxes and shipping. You can also preview the flavours and list ingredients and have the option to switch out a bag with one of their regular granola blends. There are also certified gluten-free granola blends available.  Oatbox also provides flexibility allowing you to skip boxes if you don’t need more granola. In your first box you get a cute little glass container to take your granola on the go with you! Check out my December review to see what you receive in your first month! Take note that you will receive the monthly featured flavours not the December flavours I received.
