Arrange a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 350° F. Line a 9×13 casserole pan or baking pan with foil or parchment paper.
Place the top back on the pumpkin, and place the pumpkin into the baking pan. Bake for 1 1/2 hour to 2 hours or until filling is brown and bubbling. To serve, remove the top and spoon out portions of the filling along with bits of the cooked pumpkin. You can either leave it in the pan, or by using the foil or parchment paper, you can carefully lift it out of the pan and place it on a platter. Serve warm with sliced French bread for serving.
