Delicious combination of ingredients. I roasted and pureed fresh pumpkin for this and used chicken breast (pre-marinated in herbs and baked in another dish while I roasted the pumpkin.) I added some minced garlic to the broth cause I knew I would like the flavour in there and I used couscous for the pasta. It turned out delicious. Like a pasta risotto! This one is going in my favourites folder.
I have to admit I was quite a bit scared to try this but we did. I didnt have any Thyme so I substituted for basil and a pinch of rosemary.For the winter squash we actually used the Halloween pumpkins. The first night it was okay. The flavors hadn't blended fully. The kids were not to thrilled, but after a day of sitting the kids devoured the remaining yesterday and raved about how good it was. Thanks for the recipe
this is super easy, a good fall/winter dish, and a nice way to use turkey leftovers. i made it with orzo pasta and 1 c of pumpkin puree instead of squash. the best bites are the ones with turkey--next time i'll double the turkey. it didn't blow my socks off but it was comforting and i would make it again. you could probably substitute any spices other than thyme if you prefer--garlic, basil, italian spices, etc.
