Cheesy Pumpkin Casserole (repurposing pumpkin soup)

I wasn't really sure what to call this dish.  We had a lot of this leftover pumpkin soup  and I wanted to serve something different but that utilized the soup.  My toddler tends to not be so interested in having the same meal two days in a row and I love to repurpose meals.  At any rate, my husband came up with this idea.  Very easy, filled with veggies and modifiable based on what you have at home!
