Presentation was unique and will surprise any guests. Especially when you first cut into the pumpkin and juices start dribbling out and they can see the colorful contents inside. I used a red, green and yellow bell pepper for more color. The sauce had a creamy feel in the mouth and the vegetables and beef had baked tastes. I used 1/2 teaspoon of thyme and added extra fresh ground pepper when serving. Will definitely make it again next time I have company and add some pineapple. I think the addition of sweet overtones of pineapple along with the olives will make this a 5 star recipe.
