Pasta with smoked salmon & roasted pumpkin sauce


  • Preheat oven to 180°C fan forced (200°C normal).
  • Toss the pumpkin with oil spray in an oven tray and cook in the oven for about 20 mins until tender. Remove and, when cool enough to handle, remove the skin.
  • Cook the linguine in lightly salted boiling water until al dente. Drain well and put in a large bowl.
  • At the same time, heat a little oil in a heavy-bottomed pot and gently sauté the red onion, celery and garlic until tender. Add the pumpkin, 2 cups stock and seasonings. Stir and cook for 5-10 mins, adding more stock if needed. Then stir in the cream and parsley. Roughly process and taste for seasoning.
  • Add a decent amount of parmesan to the pasta, together with the sauce and smoked salmon. Toss well and serve with extra parmesan sprinkled on top.
