Don't be afraid of the word pumpkin. It's not overpowering at all.
Tannon said this tastes like "a fancy restaurant meal". I agree, it tasted like it should have been served at Macaroni Grill, or something. I dare say this may be my favorite meal I've ever made.
P.S. I'm just now noticing it calls for 1/2 batch of Alfredo sauce, instead of 1 full batch. No wonder it tasted so good.
