Yes...it is pumpkin again!! Tonight's dinner was a faux pumpkin risotto. I had no risotto in the house, so I decided to use brown rice. I was surprised at what a wonderful savory taste this dish had. A nutmeg laced pumpkin taste with creaminess added by ricotta cheese. The peas were thrown in for color and to add more veggies! This is definitely my new comfort meal! If only I had one of rubybean77's gingerbread cupcakes for dessert.
