I have made it for the last few years around this time of year. It was originally posted by Barbara in CA. I always use 1.5 xs the vegies and add parsnip. Very good, great presenatation and can be made ahead. I have made it with and w/o the pumpkin; if w/o I sub other squash. I do not add the snap peas; just kind of what ever I have on hand or looks good at the market....Also, my own preference, I remove the casings on the sausage.
