This was very tasty! I used chicken stock instead of water and bullion (sp?). I also heated the stock and wine per other risotto recipes i've made in the past.

I turned this into a main course by adding shittake mushrooms, shrimp, asparagus and topped with walnuts. It was easy to make and was enjoyed by all.

We made the recipe as stated, with the exception of using dried thyme instead of fresh. It was delicious, though we might cut back the chicken bouillon next time. It tasted more like chicken than pumpkin.
