pasta with pumpkin and sage brown butter
- 1kg pumpkin, peeled and diced
- olive oil
- 400g pappardelle or fettuccine
- 75g butter
- 3 tablespoons whole sage leaves
- 1 cup (80g) finely grated parmesan
- sea salt and cracked black pepper
- Preheat oven to 190°C (375°F). Place the pumpkin in a baking dish and sprinkle with a little oil. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden and soft.
- Just before the pumpkin is ready, cook the pasta in a large saucepan of lightly salted boiling water until al dente. Drain. While the pasta is cooking, place the butter and sage in a saucepan over low to medium heat and allow the butter to simmer until a golden brown colour.
- To serve, place the pasta in serving plates and top with the pumpkin and parmesan. Spoon over the brown butter and sage leaves and season with salt and pepper. Serves 4.
