Chef's Notes

I used this sauce over some chocolate pasta I had. Though I probably didn't add enough sugar to the water, so get a sweet pasta, it did give a nice contrast, which regular pasta wouldn't have.


  1. Not bad just not much flavor. Some salt and cheese helped.
  2. Looked better than it tasted. I think my family was being polite.
  3. Definitely a nice change from the traditional flavors mixed with pumpkin. The cumin really stands out. Thank you for the recipe.
