Updated on March 29, 2013

It's pumpkin season already. I love this time of year - the changing colors, the cooler weather, and such good food! In this series of lenses, I bring you unusual and tasty pumpkin recipes. No pumpkin pie recipes here. You can find those anywhere.

When you're ready to try some a little new and different, I'll be waiting. Come on in and have some pumpkin casserole.

This Pumpkin Casserole is a Terrific Side Dish to a Fall Meal

Super fast pumpkin casserole recipe

If you love pumpkin, this is a must-have recipe. It's so fast and easy that you can have the kids mix it up while you're preparing something else. Help them with the oven, of course.

Pumpkin casserole is not as sweet as you might think. It's a perfect accompaniment to poultry or pork. It bakes up nicely even if you use less sugar. What a great way to add variety and lots of vitamins to your meal.

2 cups pumpkin puree

1 cup evaporated milk

1 cup white sugar

1/2 cup self-rising flour

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup butter

2 pinches ground cinnamon

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

2. Combine the pumpkin, evaporated milk, sugar, flour, eggs, vanilla, melted butter and ground cinnamon to taste. Spoon into a casserole dish.

3. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 1 hour.

      We grew a ton of pumpkins this year and I'm looking for some non-sweet ways to use them. I may try this without the sugar. It looks good.
