No one in my family really liked this recipe. We might just not be "pumpkin in your main dish" people.
Yummy! I used mild Italian pork sausage instead, as I could not find the turkey sausage and I used regular sodium chicken broth and added 1/2 tsp. sugar to offset the saltiness and make it balanced. Delicious! Great way to use up that leftover pumpkin from the can after I make my Thanksgiving pumpkin pies!! Thanks for sharing!
Enjoyable and quick to put together. I used all broth and though it was good I believe the wine would add flavor. I upped the pasta by at least half a cup and used one tablespoon fresh sage finely chopped. The entire dish was gone and my 21 year old son came back for thirds!!!
This had a really nice flavor and came together very quickly and easily for a healthy weeknight dinner. Definitely a keeper! Great recipe!
