Description

Pumpkin is often used to make a traditional “sauce” for pasta in Italy, and here it is sautéed with speck, or dry-cured ham that’s similar to prosciutto, and shallots. Rather than simply tossing this mixture with the cooked and drained pasta, the pasta is finished in the pan, which allows the dish to come together. Adding a bit of the pasta cooking water also allows the mixture to evenly coat the pasta.

Ingredients

1 tablespoon butter
1 shallots (peeled and diced)
200 grams pumpkin (peeled, seeded and diced)
ham
150 grams speck
150 grams crème fraîche
1/2 glass white wine
350 grams rigatoni (mezzi, or similar pasta)
parmesan cheese (grated)

Directions

1In a pan, melt the butter on medium heat. Add the shallot and saute for a few minutes.
2Add the pumpkin and speck and cook until brown for 5 minutes.
3Add the wine and cook until completely evaporated.
4Cook the pasta in salted boiling water until al dente, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain the pasta, reserving a small amount of the pasta water.
5Add the pasta to the pan along with the creme fraiche.
6Continue cooking until the pumpkin is soft, adding a little of the salted pasta water, if necessary.
7Serve with Parmesan cheese.
