    troutlily's Note:

    I found this recipe in the Star Tribune last weekend and thought I'd give it a try. The pumpkin sauce is very creamy and luscious- it would be great with pasta I think. I made a few changes- added a can of corn to the filling and added an additional 15 0z. can of pumpkin to the sauce after I realized the original recipe made a thinner sauce than I wanted (alternatively, I could have added less water, but it was too late). This is really great comfort food!

      This is really very good - no fat except for the cheese & minor amount from a whole poached chicken breast. Made 11 x 13 inch & 4 x 8 inch pan. Took your advice & used a 28 ounce can of cooked pureed pumpkin. I am glad that I did not increase the garlic however because it, along with the green onion, became REALLY strong overnight. This is from a true garlic aficionado! I am going to make this again & decrease the garlic by half (I can't believe I'm writing this but I actually got heartburn from the garlic & burped it all night - LOL).. or at least sautee the garlic before blending...I also will either go with a dry curd cottage cheese & egg & corn supplement to the chicken & green onion or black bean/cheese. Overall I really liked the flavor (more readily tastable at first presentation) & the texture of the pumpkin. Oh, I used 2 1/2 cups of chicken broth in place of water & salt (from poached chicken). Served with sour cream & tomato/cilantro salsa. Thank you for this recipe - I will be making again.
