Made this with pepitas instead of nuts listed. Cooked it on the stovetop, and added some dried cherries to the finished dish. It's a keeper recipe!!!

It was great! I added chopped carrots since the chopper was out for the onion. It was delicious!

I started making this many years ago when it was first published. My husband wouldn't have Thanksgiving without it!

I did not use the butter; but put all the ingredients into the microwave. I cooked it on a lower setting and it was delicious. I liked lowering the fat content and it was nice and moist without the butter.
