We enjoyed this casserole. We used diced beef instead of ground beef. Next time I would use a larger pumpkin to fit more casserole but very tasty.

Great fun! Nice presentation! I made this for a ladies Hallowe'en bridge luncheon and it was well received. I will definitely make it again.

Delicious! My kids loved it and our friends thought it was really a cool idea. Will become a tradition every Halloween. We served it to go with our movie night watching "It's the Great Pumkin, Charlie Brown"
