Moroccon Tagine Of Lentils & Pumpkin

Ready in 45 minutes

For this tagine you can use pumpkin, butternut squash, or acorn squash. For a lovely addition, add greens both for color and flavor (I use Swiss chard or escarole). You could also add white beans. Serve with couscous or rice for a complete dinner.
