Zucca alla menta - Pumpkin with mint


I used to hate pumpkin and I used to hate mint with savoury foods, now I absolutely adore it.
It was my friend Francesca Davoli that once cooked it for me and I've always made it ever since especially at this time of the year. Oh by the way Francesca is a home stylist, you can see her work here


This is what it looks like before going into the oven


And this is what it's like just out of the oven, quite crispy this time, notice how much the pieces have shrunk!
This is a simple but rather nice recipe, trust me!

Nice use of pumpkin and mint. Makes the thought of autumn more bearable.

Yes, I'm a writer--I've written 11 kids' books, worked on a travel book and have writtten magazine articles. And yes, sadly, I am 42. Thanks for your nice words, Makes being my age seem a little nicer.

Your t-shirts are gorgeous--I may order one!

It's funny you mention your dislike of pumpkin & mint, that was my 1st thought when I read this! It sounds like I may be pleasantly surprised though.

Love this post! Just love fall the pumpkins and all things autumn. Last fall, we visited the White Pig in Charlottesville, VA. You should go there if you ever come to the US! The best vegan B&B ever :) Saw that Global Warming green poster in my latest issue of VegNews or Vegetarian Times and am planning on ripping it out and posting it during October - Vegetarian Awareness Month!
