      I have had something similar to this at a restaurant, too. I was very happy to try your version. The sauce had a wonderful richness and subtle spiced flavor. I used Italian sausage because I think its flavor along with the pumpkin go very well together. I did add a slosh or two of white wine, like you suggested and that added to the flavor, also. This is something that I would make again and would serve to guests. Husband and I enjoyed it. Excellent job!!

      This is unique, tasty delicious, and filling. It says it serves four, but I think it's enough to feed Jon & Kate plus 8...and anyone else who might come to the dinner table.
