1Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease bottom & sides of 9x13 pan.
Combine pumpkin, evaporated milk, eggs, sugar, cinnamon, & salt in large deep bowl. Mix with whisk until well blended. Pour into greased pan.
2Sprinkle dry cake mix evenly over pumpkin mixture. It will sink into the pumpkin mixture a little.
Top with pecans.
Melt butter & drizzle evenly over the top.
Bake at 350 degrees for 55 to 60 minutes, or until top is golden brown & set. Ovens will always vary.
3Cool, serve chilled, topped with whipped topping, if desired.
Note: Can be served slightly warm. Substitute walnuts for pecans, or no nuts at all. For a special treat, try it with vanilla ice cream instead of whipped topping.
