Yum! I used fresh pumpkin and evaporated skim milk to cut down on fat - delicious. Right balance of flavours.
Having a sensitivity to tomatoes, I am often looking for alternatives that aren't big on cream or cheese. Like a previous reviewer, I used fresh pumpkin and evaporated skim milk, and the effect was great! Will definitely use again.
I'm not a big pumpkin fan but I'd tried a very similar sauce in a favorite local restaurant. This was just as fantastic - an excellent and unique alternative to tomato, pesto or alfredo when they get "old". The sweetness is just subtle enough, and it even tasted good cold when the stragglers got to the table! :)
