Halloween is round the corner, so here I'm representing a delicious pumpkin pasta especially for this Halloween...
  Flat leaf parsley 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (Handful Of)
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm) (Unpeeled)
  Pumpkin 14 Ounce (400 Grams Excluding Seeds & Skin)
  Short pasta/Broken spaghetti 7 Ounce (200 Grams I Use Fresh Garganelli On This Page)
  Parsley 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Grated parmesan cheese 1 Ounce (30 Grams)
  Garlic clove 1 (Unpeeled)
  Extra virgin olive oil 1 Tablespoon
  Salt To Taste
  Pepper To Taste

STEP 1 - Remove the pumpkin’s skin and seeds and chop into tiny cubes (as small as possible).

- Remove, rinse and chop parsley leaves.

- Grate parmesan.

STEP 2 - Cover the base of your frying pan with oil and add the garlic clove. Fry on medium heat for 3-4 mins until clove turns golden.

- Depending on how much you like garlic, remove or leave the clove.

STEP 3 - Add the pumpkin, parsley, and half a teaspoon of salt. Also add a dash of chili powder if you like.

- Cover with water and cook on a medium heat, stirring occasionally, until texture resembles that of a lumpy sauce. Allow roughly 40 mins.

STEP 4 - Add your pasta and if your soup is already quite thick, another cup of hot water from the kettle.

- Cook on same heat until the pasta is cooked (see its packet’s timings).

STEP 5 - Finally, stir in the grated parmesan and serve immediately.
