"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Personal Notes:
I sometimes end up having to cook this a little longer to avoid a soggy middle. Also since the can of pumpkin holds just about 2 cups, I always make two, one for us, both Chris and I love this, and one to share. I like it fresh from the oven with butter, but it's also good toasted with cream cheese.
