I've bookmarked 2 recipes by Donna Hay for LTU theme pumpkin. I've tried the pasta here and here's another inspired pumpkin recipe adapted from Donna Hay with my slightly modified version below :
Crispy Bacon-wrapped Pumpkin
serves 2 - 3 persons
Butternut pumpkin - deseeded, peeled and cut into 4 thick slices about 1 inch thick and 3 inch long for each slice
4 - 5 slices of Back Bacon
1 table spoon olive oil
Cracked black pepper
Preheat oven to 160°C
Wrap 1 slice of bacon around each pumpkin and place in a baking dish.
Add the oil & black pepper and toss to coat.
Roast for about 40 minutes or until tender.
These crispy bacon-wrapped butternut slices is served with some butterhead and a bowl of fragrant fried rice. I simply make some fried rice lightly tossed with olive oil, pine nuts and dried rosemary leaves. Pinch of salt and pepper to taste
Well, the bowl of fragrant rice complement to the sweetness and savoury of these bacon wrapped pumpkin slices ... We loved it ! Enjoy !
