Love this recipe, I added a little chicken stock because it was a little dry when I made it and omitted the celery because I'm not a fan of celery. I make this every fall for family when they come to visit!

Did not like the dry taste of it - 1 cup of flour and 4 cups of bread was too too dry and not a very good taste withi the pumpkin - Wisconsin - would not recommend.

Loved it. Made half the recipe in an 8x8. Required 5 or 10 more minutes uncovered baking time.

this dish was delicious! Sort of like a stuffed zucchini boat, except all mixed together in a convenient casserole. I was skeptical about the pumpkin, but really liked the flavor combination in the end. We served it as a main dish was side salads.
