Pumpkin Mushroom Pasta

This Pumpkin Mushroom Pasta is the perfect way to enjoy your favorite autumn flavors year-round and can easily be whipped up on a busy weeknight!  It can function as either a vegetarian main course or as a side dish.  I used a traditional Italian durum wheat pasta, but feel free to use whatever type you like if you are gluten free or have other preferences!
