Pumpkin "Kasha" Recipe

Ukrainian "Kasha" is a lot like rice pudding. For me, pumpkin pudding goes way back to the old days with grandma and her wood burning pizza oven. This recipe is more of a modern version. This pudding is sweet, creamy and crusty on the outside.

I make my own pumpkin paste, it's very simple to make and easy to store in a freezer. How to make Pumpkin Puree
