A really nice, smooth sauce. I loved the garlic flavour in it and would probably increase it next time as I like garlic strong! I also might use less evaporated milk compared to pumpkin, to make the pumpkin flavour a little stronger. It's definitely worth sprinkling with parmesan when serving- this seemed to boost the other flavours. Thanks for a wonderfully simple and tasty sauce!
