      SO yummy! I am making this again tomorrow for a friend who has a Halloween Party. It was perfect here, and will be there as well! :) I used fresh baby portabella mushrooms, sliced, and then didn't let it simmer on the stove. It did take 2 hrs to cook, but was well worth the wait! Thank you!

      Such a fun dinner idea! Perfect even if people don't like pumpkin, since you really don't HAVE to eat the pumpkin (although I highly recommend it)!

      Fun!! We really enjoyed this. I made just as posted except I didn't have any mushrooms, and I did add a bit of garlic. We enjoyed this for our Halloween dinner tonight!
