This one's so quick and easy, and its understated class makes it a fantastic entree at a dinner party. It's done the rounds between all my friends, and we love it as a quick and gorgeous dinner! This pasta tastes divine, it's quick, simple, looks beautiful, and if that's not enough, it's also incredibly budget-and waistline-friendly! Goes well visually and palatably with a fresh green salad.

Although I am a vegetarian, this recipe was too healthy tasting even for me! I did not find it easy (peeling and grating pumpkin takes time - even with a food processor!) or quick...It was also VERY squashy tasting.

I thought this was ok. I added a can of diced tomatoes because I knew my 5 year old would turn his nose up if it didn't look more like spaghetti. I also used canned pumpkin puree because I was searching for recipes to use a spare can I had in my pantry. I might make this again, but will doctor it up to fit our tastes.

I added more tomato paste and some tomato sauce- and some much-needed spices (salt/pepper/cumin/garlic). But was very tasty after a bit of tampering.
