Head of Garlic
Brown Onions
Diced Pumpkin
A couple of Handfuls of spinach leaves
mushrooms, about 4 per person
A bunch of basil
A splash of white wine
A cup and a half of cream or stock
Powletts Picnic Cheese





I like to start this one by roasting my veggies in a pot that i can transfer to the stove later. I add the diced pumpkin, onion and  peeled garlic to the pot an drizzle with a little olive oil.

I roast these together at 180 degrees until the pumpkin is soft (so 15 minutes?)

Then I transfer the pot to the stove top and put on another pot for the pasta. I prepare the pasta as per the packet instructions.

Without removing the roasted veggies I deglaze the bottom of the pot with my white wine. Then I add in my mushroom slices, lightly frying these until they are about 1/3 reduced in size. Then I add the rest of my liquid – either stock or cream or a combination of both depending upon what I have on hand. I gently simmer this while I wash and shred my spinach and basil leaves and the pasta cooks.

Once the pasta is cooked I add this and the green leaves to the sauce and mix through. then I finish with cracked black pepper and a generous grating of Powlett Picnic Cheese and serve.
