Ingredients for Pappardelle with pumpkin & thyme

  • 375g pappardelle or tagliatelle

  • Pappardelle with pumpkin & thyme, How to Make
    • Step 1
      Preheat oven to 220C. Place pumpkin in a roasting pan. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons oil. Season with salt and pepper. Toss well to combine. Roast, tossing occasionally, for 25 minutes or until tender.
    • Step 2
      Meanwhile, cook pasta in a saucepan of boiling salted water for 8 minutes or until al dente. Drain. Return pasta to pan and toss with 1 tablespoon oil.
    • Step 3
      Heat butter and remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a large, deep pan over medium–high heat. Add garlic, onions and thyme, and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until soft. Add wine and cook for 4 minutes or until reduced by three-quarters. Stir in cream, bring to a simmer, then cook for 6 minutes or until thickened.
    • Step 4
      Stir parmesan into cream mixture. Add pasta, pumpkin and parsley, and toss to combine. Cook, tossing, for 2 minutes or until pasta is warmed through.
    • Step 5
      Divide among plates. Top with extra shaved parmesan and thyme to serve.

    Notes:
    Top tips: For a variation, substitute ricotta, bocconcini or feta for the parmesan. Or, add thinly sliced prosciutto with the pasta in step 4.
