Recipe for pasta with pumpkin sauce

This is how it is done: First, preheat the oven to 200 degrees up/down. Then prepare the vegetables.

To do this, open the pumpkin, remove the seeds and damaged areas of the skin, and then cut everything into large cubes. Weigh out 300 grams of this and put the rest into a freezer bag and refrigerate for another recipe like this pumpkin bread.

Onions and tomatoes are cut into four parts, garlic cloves are simply peeled, peppers are cleaned and cut into large pieces. The potato is also peeled and cut into small cubes.

Now everything is placed on a baking sheet, sprinkled with plenty of olive oil and placed in the oven for about 25 minutes until the vegetables are soft. It is the base for pumpkin sauce.

Meanwhile, you can cook pasta (penne is a good choice) in salted water until almost al dente. Then drain the pasta, removing some of the starchy water from the pasta first. You can also chop the parsley.

When the other ingredients have finished cooking in the oven, put them in a blender and puree them together with a little salt, pepper, a few spoons of olive oil and a little pasta water.

Now add the pumpkin sauce to the noodles and mix. For this you no longer need to turn on the stove. If the sauce has not yet bound to the noodles, drink some of the noodle water. Then add the chopped parsley and season well with salt and pepper.

And then he says: Bon appetit!
