Pumpkin Rigatone (BC)

Pumpkin is a great vegetable, so diverse in its use. Add a bit of pasta, onions and cream and you have a great meal. This can easily be made with risotto instead of pasta, but you won’t need any cream.

Ingredients:

  • 160gr coarsely grated pumpkin
  • 1 onion
  • 2 tsp butter
  • 1 tsp sage or thyme
  • 70gr rigatone or other dried pasta
  • 3 tbs 15% cooking cream
  • 2 eggs, to serve

Serves 1 as part of the Budget Challenge

Recipe:

Cook the pasta as per instructions on the package. When draining, hold back bit of the cooking liquid.

Chop the onion finely.
Melt the butter in a thick based sauce pan. Add the pumpkin, onion and sage/thyme. Place a lid on top and simmer for 10 minutes.
Add the cream and simmer for 5 additional minutes. Should the sauce become too thick, add a bit of the cooking liquid.
Season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir the pasta through the sauce.

Serve with two baked eggs.
