The Best Stuffed Pumpkin

My new favorite! All it takes is dumping everything into a pumpkin...and wallah! It's an amazing combination of sweet and savory. It overflows with a soft and savory rice, and has a sweet and melty lamb shank that completes the look. You can't believe how amazing this tastes!
