Best pumpkin patches in Austin

It’s officially fall, y’all! This is my favorite season of the year and I’m so here for all the pumpkin patches, cozy fall dishes, and cooler weather. I can’t believe Halloween is right around the corner. Speaking of cozy fall dishes, I made this butternut squash pasta paired with Riondo Prosecco.

Butternut squash pasta

After spending a day at the pumpkin patch, I’ve been craving cozy fall dishes so I made this butternut squash pasta by roasting butternut squash in the oven with salt, pepper, and chili flakes with a pumpkin and butternut squash cream sauce. Even the butternut squash pasta is shaped like pumpkins too!

I opened up a bottle of Riondo Prosecco to enjoy while I cooked and then to enjoy with the bowl of butternut squash pasta. The light, fresh, and fruity taste of Riondo cuts through the creamy butternut squash making it a great fall pairing!

Riondo is an authentic Italian prosecco and I love their signature twist-off cap which makes it easy to enjoy a bottle of Riondo over several days – no re-corking required! I poured myself a glass and put the bottle back in the fridge to enjoy later this week.


All of these pumpkin patches are practicing safe COVID-19 regulations so please wear a mask and social distance from others.
