promfh 6y agoEasy to make and delicious. We added lamb to the meat sauce and served with with some quinoa.
swdshchf 7y agoVery nice. Use Middle Eastern or Greek-style yogurt with it. Also, better with fresh pumpkin since there's some texture left when it's done. You can add meat, but it's certainly not necessary.
