After Thanksgiving, I always have a ton of pumpkin to deal with. Usually, I puree and can it. Here's a quick and easy recipe to help use the excess! Top with sour cream and serve with fresh bread.

I halved the recipe omitted the canned mushrooms and added green pepper and celery diced finely instead. I used hot Italian sausage and we did not find it spicy would increase spices next time and maybe add more beans black beans I think would be nice. You cannot taste the pumpkin it just makes it really thick I added water instead of milk needed to add more. Served with sour cream and shredded cheese. #AllrecipesAllstarsCanada #Pumpkincraze Read More
