This squash is a wash: I baked a pumpkin pie without sugar!

Fresh off of making chicken that was too hot to eat
, my wife and I have baked a pumpkin pie that has no sugar in it. Before you take away my spatula, please help me rescue what's left...
Okay, no excuses but this concoction came to be due to two circumstances: (a) A pregnant wife who really, really wanted pumpkin pie in March and (b) an important phone call during the mixing process.
Anyways, we now have 7/8th of a large, perfectly cooked pumpkin pie sitting in the fridge. It's... very bland and what isn't bland is squash-flavored. I can eat squash, but I doubt that I can do two pounds of cold, bland pumpkin and the wife won't go near it in it's present state.
I have pretty much every major utensil and food-stuff available and am pretty deft (and daft, apparently) in the kitchen. I have no problem throwing away the crust, so feel free to suggest something from your bevy of "reused sugarless pie filling" recipes. I beseech thee, Julia Children of AskMefi: Can this pumpkin be saved?
