Autumn has arrived along with the delectable aromas of pumpkin and spice.I love pumpkin. And here you are one recipe.Pumpkin Au Gratin
1/8 cup extra virgin olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 pound peeled pumpkin, cut into 1 1/4" chunks
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put olive oil, pepper, and a few flakes of sea salt in a large bowl, then stir in Parmesan. Add pumpkin and toss until well coated. Brush a shallow gratin dish with olive oil and add pumpkin mixture. Bake 45 minutes to 1 hour. If cheese browns before pumpkin is tender, cover dish with foil for the last 15 minutes of cooking. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
