I have had this before with italian sausage and it is super yummy!
I made a pumpkin macaroni and cheese once, but this sounds even easier and creamier. Will have to give this a try for my pumpkin eaters.
It was a pleasure to meet you in Minneapolis last week and am still thinking about all the travail you went through before finally finding out that wheat was at the bottom of all your health issues. I just blogged up my thoughts on the day over at the Crispy Cook and would welcome any input you have on my summary.
Looking forward to more of your tasty posts!
I’ve never had anything like this, but it sounds quite good. I’m going to have to try it. Thanks for sharing.

That looks great, Lynn! I know I’d love it … not so sure about Mr. GFE, but I might just try it on him without telling him. He thinks pumpkin is just for desserts. 😉
