Pumpkin, Spinach & Sage Pasta


Pumpkin, Spinach & Sage Pasta

This tasty vegetarian dish captures the essence of autumn, with roasted pumpkin, aromatic sage, crème fraiche, and freshly grated parmesan. Remember that not all pumpkins are good for cooking, I like to use French pumpkin, which is delicious roasted in the oven!
