This is an amazing meal. My two children are quite picky and I was nervous on the pumpkin part. But... it turned out they all loved it, even my husband!! Everyone was shocked when I told them what was in it. My kids didnt like the pumpkin part, but they finished the whole meal!!!! This was one of the healthiest and best meals Ive ever made!! I will definetly make this meal many times again!!!
Good Either Way

I didn't read all of the 83 reviews for this recipe. So I tried it with ground turkey one meal and ground beef the next time I made it. It was very good either way. And used whole wheat pasta also.

Excellent, easy and plenty to eat for all! It seemed to take a little longer than expected but worth the wait. Also good reheated.

My husband and 3 year old hated it. Husband ate it but son actually gagged, even though he did not know about the pumpkin. I thought it would be just the thing since they both love beefy noodly stuff. I thought it was just okay, could definitely taste the pumpkin. Maybe less pumpkin, more seasonings to add some flavor.
Pumpkin, are you kidding me?

Were the first words out of my husbands mouth after devouring this meal. Now I can not wait to try it as a twist on my roasted pork, peppers & penne recipe. They should have rated this recipe amazingly easy though as I have found some 30 minute recipes tried in the past to take sometimes as long as 45 minutes, but this one is true to form!! I would have frozen half, but my son & daughter in law stopped by, and were more than happy to finish the rest:)They were also amazed by the flavor the pumpkin gives to this meal, and as suprized as my husband when I told them. Would have never thought of it myself, and I am considered the great experimentor!

This sounded a little strange to make, with the pumpkin, but it is so nutritious. Don't even need all that ground beef. Try it!!
