Pumpkin Puree

This recipe was very quick and easy to make. It has a very good flavor, but I wasn't too fond of the smooth texture. The second time I made it,I added an extra 1/4C. of chopped, toasted pecans to the puree after it was cooked. This added more "crunch" and flavor to the texture of this side dish. I prefer this over mashed sweet potatoes any day. I going to make this to go with our Thanksgiving dinner.
