  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 400°.

Combine first three ingredients in a large bowl; toss well. Place pumpkin mixture on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 30 minutes or until tender.

Heat a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add onion; sauté 8 minutes or until tender. Add garlic; sauté 1 minute. Add pumpkin mixture, 4 cups water, and remaining ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes.
