This is a hearty, rich, delicious dish to make on a chilly night, or just whenever you want some warm comfort food. I got this out of a magazine awhile ago and I'm so glad I saved it!

I had some fresh pumpkin to use and went searching for a recipe we would eat... since we're not huge pumpkin fans. This was so easy to prepare and had us actually finishing off the entire portion! I omitted the oil (used nonstick cooking spray) and salt, used orange pepper, chicken breast, fresh diced tomatoes, and frozen green beans, and added some sliced mushrooms as another reviewer recommended. Thanks for sharing!
