Pumpkin-Basil Noodles

Low cost recipe.

I moved to Brussels from USA on October 2019, it’s a beautiful city but there was one thing missing! The thing missing was the fall season… don’t get me wrong they have a colorful fall but what I meant is the smell of the pumpkin!

So I decided to stack up on pumpkin products and yet I couldn’t find any here. Maybe I was just arrived and I didn’t do much research on a store where I can find pumpkin products at. Luckily, I found them at the American Embassy store and the U.S. base store located in Brussels. Then my mission started… pumpkin-basil noodles.
