Preheat the oven to 375°F. Add the potatoes to a large pot and cover with cold water. Add a large pinch of salt. Bring the water to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook the potatoes for about 8-12 minutes, or until just fork tender.
Meanwhile, lay the bacon onto a sheet pan in an even layer. Bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until crisp. Transfer the bacon to a plate lined with paper towels and allow to drain.
Increase the oven temperature to 450°F. Drain the potatoes and transfer them to a bowl of ice water for a couple of minutes. Once cool, transfer the potatoes to paper towels and let fully dry. Use your hands or a measuring cup to smash the potatoes flat. Transfer them to the sheet pan in the bacon fat. Drizzle olive oil over top to coat them well. Season with a generous pinch of salt. Roast the potatoes for about 20-25 minutes until crisp, flipping halfway through.
Meanwhile, whisk together the sour cream and lemon juice in a small mixing bowl. Stir in the lemon zest, chives, and scallions. Season with salt to taste. Crumble the bacon into small pieces.
Transfer the potatoes to paper towels to drain. Plate them with the sour cream sauce dolloped over top. Garnish with the bacon, freshly grated parmesan, and lots of freshly ground black pepper.
In a large pot of salted, boiling water, cook pasta according to package directions.
To make the creamy alfredo sauce, melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add mushrooms. Whisk in flour about 1 minute more.
Slowly add in chicken broth, thyme and basil. Whisk constantly until well blended, about 2 minutes. Stir in half and half and parmesan until thickened, about 2 minutes. Add more half and half if the sauce is too thick. Season with salt and pepper.
Stir in pasta, ham, bacon and peas. Toss gently until well combined. Garnish with parsley.
Drain pumpkin in a mesh sleeve lined with cheesecloth for at least 1 hour. Before using, squeeze cheesecloth to release most of the liquid.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together strained pumpkin, eggs, egg yolks, 1/2 c. of the Parmesan, romano, salt and pepper. Set aside until a later step.
Cook spaghetti according to the package directions, reserving 1/2 c. pasta cooking water. Cook the bacon, and keep the fat in the pan! Add the sage leaves to the warm bacon fat until aromatic.
Working quickly, whisk 1/4 c. reserved pasta water into the pumpkin and egg mixture. After draining the pasta, put back in large pot. Pour the pumpkin mixture over the noodles. To thin out the sauce, add more reserved pasta water.
Add 2 Tbsp. reserved bacon fat and sage, and stir. Stir in the bacon bits. Add salt and pepper as needed. Enjoy!
Cook pasta according to package directions but stopping short a minute less than package's cooking time. (Pasta will finish cooking in later step.) Drain pasta, reserving 1/2 cup of pasta water.
