    Very disappointed in this recipe. It was too spicy hot, but didn't have any other seasonings. Even after I tried fixing it, most went into the garbage.

    I adore this recipe because I love pumpkin, but my husband and I agreed it still needs 'something' else to it, just not sure what. But a quick easy meal for sure!

    This was an excellent day-before-Thanksgiving supper - my husband was skeptical of using pumpkin in a pasta sauce but he loved the dish! I used previously prepared pumpkin from our garden & an 8 oz tub of light spreadable cream cheese, but I cut the butter back to only 2 tablespoons and never missed it. Will definitely make again!
