      I forgot to add the Parmesan cheese until I read Sydney Mike's review just now! I'll add that to leftovers tomorrow ~ I added a sprinkling of red pepper flakes to my butternut squash before roasting, and it gave the dish a nice zing of heat ~ LOVED the sweetness of the squash, and the brininess of the olives! I salted/peppered a whole chicken breast, cooked it, then cooled it just enough to slice before adding it back to the sauce/pasta, garnished with fresh basil! Made for Summer Photo Tag 2012.

      Sorry Pat, but I thought this was just okay even though I'd cooked the pumpkin in spices and used flavoured chicken sausages, it needed a bit more flavour for me, maybe some basil, oregano or the like would give it a punchier flavour.

      Very much enjoyed this pasta dish, with its nice combo of flavors! Particularly liked the roasted pumpkin & the green olives! I did prefer it without the Parmesan cheese, but my other half poured it on! A keeper of a recipe, for sure! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in Went to the Market recipe tag]
