Store pasta in creamy ricotta-pumpkin cream

You can store the pasta, along with the squash, in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 day. We would not recommend freezing.


Pumpkins, which are usually preferred for this type of dish, are slightly tasteless, unlike the classic ones. Precisely because they are flavored by frying, they are very tasty and ideal for processing in this dish. In short, the choice is yours. The pasta, on the other hand, must be short shapes such as: penne, farfalle, fusilli, strozzapreti, oricchette, ruote or etc. This is because they absorb the sauce better if they’re pierced or devoured inside.

If you like, you can substitute parsley for the rosemary. And grated Parmesan or Pecorino over the pasta gives the dish a special twist!

  • Halve the pumpkin and scoop out the seeds with a spoon. You should now peel all pumpkin varieties except the Hokkaido. Then cut into rough pieces.
  • Briefly roast the pumpkin seeds in a pan without adding fat. Put aside.
  • Peel and finely chop the shallots.
  • Heat the olive oil and the rosemary sprig in a saucepan and sautĂ© the shallots in it, stirring until translucent.
  • When the shallots are ready and the rosemary sprig is lightly browned, remove the rosemary from the pot and add the pumpkin pieces to the pot. Mix everything and sautĂ© briefly.
  • Season with pepper and salt and cover with the vegetable broth. Let cook for about 15 to 20 minutes .
  • Meanwhile, bring the pasta water to a boil in a second pot. Cook the noodles according to package directions.
  • If the pumpkin is soft but still al dente, take about ⅔ of the pumpkin and put it in a blender. Puree and mix with the ricotta.
  • Return the pureed squash to the pot and stir well. Taste and adjust the creaminess with a little pasta water if necessary.
  • When the noodles are al dente, drain them and add them to the pan, dripping wet. Mix well so the pasta absorbs the sauce.
  • Now you can serve the noodles with pumpkin and enjoy sprinkled with roasted pumpkin seeds!
