Earlier this week I became slightly obsessed with roasting a pumpkin, so I did it. It's easy, simply cut the pumpkin in half, scoop out the seeds and threads and put face down on a baking sheet in a 400 degree oven for about an hour (plus or minus depending on the size of the pumpkin).
1/2 onion diced
2 garlic cloves minced
5-6 cups of chicken stock
3/4 cup white wine
Pecorino (1/4 - 1/2 cup grated)
1 tbsp butter
8 fresh sage leaves chopped (to taste)
In a sauce pan bring the stock to an almost simmer and keep warm.
In a large pot sautee the onion in oil with salt and peper until onion is softened.
Add the garlic and rice. Sautee until rice starts becoming translucent.
Add the white wine and stir until liquid is abosrbed and alcohol is gone (about 3 minutes).
Add 1 ladle full of stock to the rice. Stir until liquid is absorbed. Continue adding stock one ladle at a time until the rice is cooked.
Just before it is finished, add the pumpkin, sage, a dash of nutmeg, the butter and additional salt and pepper to taste. Grate the pecorino into the dish. Stir until pumpkin is heated through. Add a dash of apple cider vinegar to brighten up the flavors. Enjoy!
