From Cooking Light. Made this for dinner last night and it's delicious, yet healthy enough to have more than one piece. Would be great with any stew or soup. Pepitas are hulled pumpkinseeds. I used raw pepitas, but roasted would be fine, too. I prefer whole wheat pastry flour instead of all-purpose.
