Author Notes: This warm roasted pumpkin and goat cheese salad has everything it takes to make us happy in a fall day. The goat cheese salty softness and the fresh spinach freshness balance the soft and warm sweetness of the roasted pumpkin. It's a salad that is eaten with pleasure from the first to the last bite. You can enjoy it as a side dish or make it the star of the meal. —Paula
