    I find pumpkin to be one of the most under-utilized squashes in the USA. We all love going to the pick your own pumpkin patches but have you ever tried growing your own? it's super easy and if you choose variety that gives plenty of good flesh for puree and lots of seeds for roasting, you can make more than just sweets. I nmake a southwestern flavoured savory Pumpkin sauce for Pasta to be served along side fish or chicken with a thicker version of the sauce. It's SO easy. If you can, you just put up cans of puree and then make the recipe with fresh ingredients any time of year. Since Wahoo is a game fish that tends to be cuaght in the fall here in Southern California, we make alot of this dish then. You just ad cream cheese and veggie stock to the puree plus a homemade mix of southwestern spices. I keep the sauce very thick for topping the fish or meat and then thin the sauce out for the pasts. I also add microplaned parmesan to the sauce. If you like it spice, you can add red pepper flakes, crushed. Then, when served, I top the pasta with roasted Pepitas, the inner green part of the pumpkin seed. It's wonderful inb the fall or ANy time of the year. if you have not canned your own pumpkin, you can just buy a can of pumpkin puree but be CERTAIN it is not the canned Pumpkin Pie stuff!
