This is a good recipe. I am giving it 3 stars because we thought it needed some spices. We added fresh parsley, thyme and rosemary from our garden. The addition of the fresh herbs flavored this dish very nicely. We also used leftover canned pumpkin instead of fresh. Great use for leftover canned pumpkin after recipes that don't use the whole can!

Awesome recipe, I keep a stock in my freezer for days I don't want to cook. Better with more pumpkin than less and is so tasty that the cheese is not needed if dieting.
