You can buy peeled and cubed squash in many supermarket produce departments. While it steams you can make the pesto and have dinner on the table in 30 minutes.
Steam the pumpkin in a double boiler or steamer basket for about 10 to 12 minutes, or until tender. Drain and rinse the pumpkin until cool.
Once the pumpkin has cooled, add it to a medium bowl with the beans, onion, salt and pepper, and pesto. Mix well until combined.
