Pumpkin has to be one of our favourite veg, it's so useful and wholesome we had to share this Mac and Cheese recipe with a pumpkin based cheese sauce!
Pre heat fan oven to 180°C.
On a chopping board carefully cut the pumpkin in half and scoop out the seeds and pulp, chop each half into quarters and roast in the oven on a baking tray for 30 minutes until the pumpkin is soft and cooked through. Leave to cool for 5-10 minutes before handling, scoop out the pumpkin
While the pumpkin is roasting, cook your pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water, (following pack instructions). When cooked, drain in the sink and rinse in cold water to stop it cooking and sticking together.
To make the delicious quick sauce for the Mac n Cheese, simply blend all the sauce ingredients together until smooth.
Mix the drained pasta with the sauce, coating well. Transfer to your oven proof dish of choice and smooth the top. Mix the breadcrumb topping ingredients together and sprinkle over the top of the pasta.
Bake in the pre heated oven for 15 minutes until bubbling and golden brown on top! Enjoy
