I've had this in my cookbook for ages and was doing a tidy up and came across it. I am really going to have to try recipes shortly after I save them. This is a real treat. Really easy and DELICIOUS. I wish I had tried this earlier, but there are always so many good recipes constantly coming through it is a challenge to keep up with them. I am now on a mission to try out other recipes that I have kept, and not got around to trying.
The base of this recipe is very nice. A couple of minor changes.
I did dice my bacon up first, and sauteed with the onion, and plenty of garlic; I also added a pinch of red pepper flakes, because pumpkin can be very bland.
The addition of the wine was very nice, but after tasting I still needed some extra flavor for my tastes. I added a little brandy which really gave it a nice depth of flavor.
And I also added some fresh thyme to the dish as the sauce cooked.
I'm giving this 5 stars because the base recipe, was very good. Just because I added extra flavors for my taste didn't take away from the base recipe which is quite delicious. Served with penne pasta and toasted pumpkin seeds as a garnish
Thx for a very enjoyable dish!
I made this the other night to go with some gnocchi. I was looking for something pumpkin as it is the season for it and all. I think it turned out really well. I should have chopped up the bacon before cooking it with the onions because it didn't cook as fast as the onions did. I did use parsley but I actually thought it overpowered the pumpkin so I probably wouldn't add it next time. I'd make it again though, thanks!
This sounded so interesting, as I’ve never had it. If you do like pumpkin try this. We sautéed chopped garlic along with the onion & if you’re a garlic lover, this addition is a must for the flavor. I also thought the chopped fresh parsley was a main player too, so I wouldn’t omit it. We seasoned with salt, pepper, paprika, & nutmeg. Served with penne & grilled pork tenderloin that was wrapped in bacon (got at Costco). Everything worked so nicely together.
