I just love this recipe and come back to it every year when it gets cool. I splurge on apple sage soysage at Whole Foods (in the refrigerated area with the tofu, seitan, etc.), which really makes it. I generally use most of a can of pumpkin and then don't bother to make "cream" but just add  almond milk until it looks right. My laziness doesn't seem to have an impact on the taste. I was just looking up the recipe again to make sure I have all the ingredients. Can't wait for dinner!


This was really interesting and different. I tried it because it didn't sound like anything I'd had before, and I really liked it. I think next time I might try it with browned tempeh instead of the faux sausage.


My husband really liked this, but I just thought it was okay/good.  It seemed like maybe it was missing something; if I make it again I would like to add another vegetable, but I don't know what goes well with pumpkin  ???


this turned out great! The perfect Fall dish!
