Pumpkin and Feta Pasta

 

METHOD:

  1. Preheat oven to 180o In a medium baking tray place feta in the middle and pumpkin and garlic cloves (with skin on) around the feta. Drizzle olive oil and pull off thyme leaves, sprinkle over the tray along, and then season. Place in oven for 25 minutes or until pumpkin is just starting to turn golden.
  2. Once cooked and garlic is cool enough to handle, squeeze the garlic out of their casings and into the tray.
  3. Next, gently mix together the contents of the tray to make a creamy sauce. Add the spinach, cooked pasta, and a splash of the pasta water. Mix again.
  4. Finally, top with roasted walnuts, garlic flakes, and a pinch of salt.
