      Not a bad recipe and pretty easy to make. Sausage and pumpkin does make a good combo, but I didnt like the sweet taste from the brown sugar, although it was very subtle. I think a more spicy addition would have been better, like a bit of cayenne (although I really like spicy food), and leave out the brown sugar. This is one of those recipes that I would cut out of a magazine, make once, and think it was pretty good but would probably not go back to often enough to keep.

      So delicious! The blend of sweet and savory flavors was excellent! I did substitute turkey italian sausage, and I added a little cayenne pepper at the end. This was fantastic and I can't wait to make it again.

      I really did quite enjoyed this recipe...but I did make some changes! I roasted up some leftover butternut squash, and left it a bit on the chunky side. I used 5 garlic, left out the brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice (didn't have it and don't care for it) and added about 1/2 tsp dried sage (fresh would have been better but forgot to get it).. and 1/4 tsp crushed pepper and served it over whole wheat rotini. I had enough for 5 servings. This could be served up spicer if using hot Italian Sausages. Wow...what sounded like a weird combination turned out to be quite outstanding! My only disappointment with this recipe was the way it was written could have been made clearer the additional oils needed to complete the recipe. Overall...I would do this one again!!, but with my changes!!
