“I had an abundance of pumpkins that I grew last year, so I tried this recipe from Gourmet Magazine and it was fantastic. The recipe calls for solid packed pumpkin, so feel free to use that if you don't have fresh pumpkin available. This recipe is scaled to serve 2, so adjust according to your needs. I hope you enjoy it!”
