So last night I tried to re create this pasta dish I had tried when we were on holiday. I looked on the net for a few ideas and took a few of them and added my own in. It was really delicious, it could of used a dash of something else maybe, not sure what, could of been that I used low fat cream and not full fat cream...
So first of all I got half a pumpkin (butternut would of been great, but I could only get a jap pumpkin) and cut it up into 1cm or so pieces. I cut half a red onion finely and 2 cloves of garlic. I put all this in a roasting pan with some olive oil, rosemary, salt and pepper. I roasted them for about 20 mins I think on 200 celcius.
Then I cut up 2 chicken breasts into about 1-2 cm pieces and the rest of the onion. I had some frozen spinach so I de thawed that in the microwave. (Meanwhile the water was on for the pasta). Then I cooked the chicken and onion til browned and then added the pumpkin and spinach. When the pasta was almost cooked I added about 300-400mls cream, 2 handfuls of continental (flat leaf parsely) some more salt and pepper and a handful of parmesan cheese.
To serve I used Fettucine, but I think they used liguine in the place I had it. I added some extra parsley and parmesan cheese on the top once it was in the bowls.
Tonight I am going to add some feta to the left overs and see what that is like. Pine nuts could be added too for extra texture.
