Roast Pumpkin

I like pumpkin, around here it’s in the supermarket for about a week so I grabbed one (they’re probably not the best though because they tend to be ones for carving rather than picked for their flavour).  It was getting to that point where I needed to do something for it so I decided to roast it.

I cut it into quarters, scooped out the seeds and soft flesh, and put on a lightly oiled baking tray, and put into the oven at about 200C for the better part of an hour (which, it turned out, was slightly too long perhaps!).

When they had cooled off I scooped out the insides (the skin basically peeled off) and mashed it up a bit.  I ate it up in a seed pitta with cottage cheese (perhaps feta would have been better?). Yummers.
