Chef’s Tips:

  1. To roast a pumpkin, wash the squash and poke a few holes in it, then put the whole thing in the oven for 2-3 hours. Once it’s tender, cut it in half, remove the seeds, and separate the pulp from the skin. Use what you’ve made in this recipe. You can freeze the rest or use some for a pumpkin pie.
