Pumpkin Penne with sausage

Scare your family tonight with how eerily awesome this is!!!

3/4 cup uncooked penne pasta
2 Italian sausage links, casings removed
1/2 cup chopped sweet onion
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tsp olive oil
1/3 cup white wine or chicken broth
1 bay leaf
3/4 cup chicken broth
1/3 cup canned pumpkin or fresh pumpkin puree
3 tsp minced fresh sage, divided
1/8 tsp each salt, pepper and ground cinnamon
Dash ground nutmeg
3 tbsp half-and-half cream
2 tbsp shredded Romano cheese

Cook pasta according to package directions.  Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink, breaking into crumbles.  Remove with slotted spoon; drain on paper towels.  Discard all but 1 tsp drippings.  Cook and stir onion and garlic in oil and reserved drippings over medium-high heat until tender.  Add wine (or 1/3 cup broth) and bay leaf.  Bring to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced by half.  Stir in broth (3/4 cup), pumpkin, 1-1/2 tsp sage and remaining seasonings; cook 1 minute longer.  Add the cream and sausage; heat through.  Remove by leaf.  Drain pasta; transfer to a large bowl.  Add sausage mixture; toss to coat.  Sprinkle with cheese and remaining sage.

Live From 30 Rock!

It's The Today Show's annual tradition - Halloween dress up day!  And they did it true SNL style.  Which skit do you think won for best dressed?  Spartan Cheerleaders, Mary Katherine Gallagher, Wayne & Garth, Blues Brothers, Pat or Mom's Jeans?

Happy Halloween!

Pee Wee's Back

Pee Wee Herman's coming back.

Actor Paul Reubens was on The Tonight Show the other night, and let it "leak" that there's a new Pee Wee movie on the way.

Judd Apatow is producing, and an as-yet unnamed director

That's going to make a lot of Pee Wee maniacs happy.

But here's something that made me happier. Paul Reubens as Pee Wee Herman doing the voiceover for the new Avengers movie trailer.

Check it out!

Too Much Wine on Your Hands?

The wine critic for The New York Times clearly has too much time on his hands.

In his column this week, Eric Asimov took the time to point out that Kerry Washington - who plays Olivia Pope on Scandal - is drinking her wine all wrong.

His critique: "She habitually grabs goblets by the bulb rather than the stem, as a wine lover would. She never swirls and sniffs, the ritual that non-wine drinkers alternately find amusing, affected, or annoying. She guzzles rather than sips."

Someone needs to tell this guy...

(1) Olivia's a fictional character.
(2) It's probably cranberry or pomegranate juice she's sipping.
(3) He should get a life.

Peter Pan's Clock is Ticking

NBC's live production of Peter Pan is just over a month away - premiering on December 4 - so the PR machine is starting to rev up.

Yesterday, The Today Show played host to the new Peter - Alison Williams - and a couple of former Peters - Sandy Duncan and Cathy Rigby.

It's always nice when the future meets the past. And this meeting was pretty cool.
 

And the first promo has been released too - check it out.

Does Christopher Walken fit the bill as Captain Hook?

Earning a Black Bear Belt

A video posted to YouTube a couple of weeks ago is going viral these days.

Two black bears, taking to the streets of Rockaway, New Jersey and duking it out.

The fight starts in someone's front yard, then rolls into the street.

Check out the video - but if you're prone to motion-sickness, you might want to pop a dramamine first.

See if you agree that the bears sound a little bit like the Three Stooges when they're actually fighting...

Hey, Nice Gourds!

It's Halloween, and that means it's pumpkin-carving time.

Some people just cut triangles out of the pumpkin, scoop out the seeds, toss in a candle, and boom! It's jack o'lantern time.

Not this young lady. Not sure who she is, but it looks like she submitted her photo to The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Take a large pumpkin. Cut it in half. Cut out holes for your legs in the bottom half..

Carve out the top, and put it aside.

Cut a couple of holes out of the top half of the pumpkin. String those pieces together with candy corn.

Put the whole thing on, and you've got a pumpkini

Whatcha Up to These Days, Jerry?

Jerry Seinfeld is probably one of the best-known comedians on the planet these days.

Certainly in the Top Ten.

So what's he been up to lately?

From the looks of this promo, he's been busy taping his web series, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.

He picks up a comedian in a classic car, and they zoom off to have coffee and chat.

Fun concept, fun results. And the new season starts November 6.
