This is a great vegetable dish with 5 star presentation. I made this as a side for a fall get together with friends. My small pumpkins were on the larger scale, so I used one half of a pumpkin per serving and as a result, my pumpkins did not have lids. I served these along side a bison meat loaf. I made a couple of minor changes. I used chicken stock instead of vegetable stock and pecans instead of the walnuts. The presentation is really quite lovely. These would make a great vegetarian main. Your guests will be singing your praises. Thanks for posting this Sassy.
