The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of roasted pumpkin pasta with brown butter sauce and thyme. The recipe for this fall-inspired dish comes from Annie's Eats. The longest step of the recipe is roasting the pumpkin, which takes about 25 minutes. Brown butter, thyme, and pumpkin are hearty, rich flavors that you won't get sick of if you want to pack this for lunch all week.
