"Way too much sauce. Pasta was swimming in a giant bowlful of sauce, like a soup. Did not serve 6. I would double the pasta to serve six and increase the flour so the sauce might actually thicken. Needs more pumpkin and sage."

"I thought it turned out a little bland but a good start to add more of my own flavors. I followed the recipe but doubled it since I was makin it for a potluck at work. I added cinnamon, onion flakes, salt, basil and some Parmesan cheese...mmmmm much better! I may use whole milk next time to see if it thickens up better. I'd make it again with my additions. I also opted to not add the nuts due to allergies"

"I also added 1 cup of pumpkin instead of the half a cup the recipe calls for..."

"I looked at the reviews before I made this dish; so I also decreased the milk and chicken broth to 1 cup each. I added a little cinnamon, seasoning salt, onion powder and crushed garlic. It was good, but I felt that it still needed something... maybe a chicken bouillon cube?"

"This was very good. It was a nice change of sauce for the ravioli. Did not use the nutmeg or nuts. I would definately make this again."
