I had the opportunity to participate in a really wonderful event the other night sponsored by One Hope Wines. It was terrific. All the proceeds from wine sales went to charity and everyone brought a dish to share. All the dishes were fancy, fall inspired dishes. I ended up making this Sweet Potato Fettuccine with Pecan Gremolata from Southern Living and it came out really great. Gremolata is any type of chopped herb condiment and this one adds pecans for a play off of a sweet potato pecan pie. It would make a great side dish for any fall inspired meal and would also be great around the holidays.
