I made this last night with a few changes: apple juice instead of wine, 1/4 cup parmesan instead of 1/2 cup, and the rice I used was fine long grain rice. This started off well, but the rice turned out very "mushy." The taste was pretty good, but I was expecting a little more of a nutmeg-cinnamon thing, considering the pumpkin. I'm definitely going to try this again, but I'll use ALL the parmesan cheese and experiment a little with the spices. Thanks for a great side dish!
