As with the Pumpkin Sausage Pasta, this recipe looks like it will become a regular fall favorite at our house. Once again, it comes from the Simply in Season cookbook. It reminded Brad and me of our days in China, as we have eaten it over rice each time I’ve made it. Oliver (11 months) is particularly fond of it, as he wraps his chubby fingers around the little pumpkin cubes and stuffs them in his mouth whole. It’s a perfect finger food, and very soft for little ones.
