Stuffed Pumpkins are such a comfort food during the crisp fall months. It can be served as a main dish or sliced smaller for a side dish.

I find the best way to eat this is to use a fork and knife to cut into the stuffing and scrap out some of the cooked pumpkin all in one bite.  Leave behind the rind.
