Try Aldi's Specially Selected Pumpkin Butternut Squash pasta sauce and their liveGfree Organic Gluten Free Brown Rice & Quinoa pasta and use it to make Ragu's No-Boil Baked Ziti (a favorite family recipe). Sweet, smooth, hints of squash, can't really taste the pumpkin. A fun, seasonal variation that was just enough different to be enjoyable.

Longing for home. For parents and sisters and all things warm and familiar but long missed and much changed, and yet the same.
Longing for friends still loved but long separated not by distance, but by time and sickness and the complications of life.
Longing for places beautiful and full of meaning that I may never see again.
Longing for the love of people dead and lost to me.
Longing for the love of people that should be walking through life with me, but are not any longer.
Sometimes all my hopes for heaven are simply for a place where longing is answered. For this burning in my throat to go away.
