Pumpkin Bananas Foster

1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick)
3/4 cup Fresh Pumpkin
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 
1/4 cup banana liqueur 
4 bananas, cut in half lengthwise, then halved 
1/4 cup dark rum 
4 scoops vanilla ice cream 

Melt butter in a flambé pan or skillet, add pumpkin, sauté 5 minutes. Add sugar and cinnamon over low heat either and cook, stirring, until the sugar dissolves. Stir in the banana liqueur, then place the bananas in the pan. When the banana sections soften and begin to brown, carefully add the rum. Continue to cook the sauce until the rum is hot, then tip the pan slightly to ignite the rum, or ignite with a long match. When the flames subside, lift the bananas out of the pan and place four pieces over each portion of ice cream. Generously spoon warm sauce over the top of the ice cream and serve immediately.
