    Weirdly.. I love this combination! Maybe it's the combination of things I love! Skip the cinnamon if you think it's odd. I used acorn squash instead and it still tastes so good.

    just made this recipe and to my taste, it's weird. Was trying it out for company Memorial Day and glad I tried it out first. There are better pasta recipes out there!

    Yes, thyme and cinnamon are 2 things I wouldn't think to put together, but neither was overpowering, and it works! I did use 2c diced butternut squash instead of pumpkin, mashed it in the pan, then added 1tsp cornstarch dissolved in 1/4 water (I thought the sauce too watery). Sweetness was just right. Very tasty, especially topped with goat cheese! Excellent!

    I just made this for dinner and have to say that the Thyme and Brown Sugar flavors do not blend well. This sounds much better than it tastes, but I will not be making this again.
