    **Mandy**'s Note:

    I like things that are quick & easy to prepare & this is no exception. This is a nice quick meal. I usually use a chunky pasta like vegeroni or penne and you can cut down the fat by using light evaporated milk if you like, I usually do. For a vegetarian meal just leave out the bacon. Much to my amazement this was even a hit with my 17 month old daughter. Tastes great cold too so could be a pumpkin pesto pasta salad!

      I loved it but true test was getting the guys to eat something with so little meat as a main meal. They thought it was great and asked for it to be put on rotation. I used "Light & Creamy" evaporated milk (cuts calories and fat)and it was wonderful. Recipe didn't mention how large the pumpkin cubes should be so I made them into almost 2cm cubes. Only problem was there weren't any left overs for me to try them for lunch the next day.
