Chitarra Alla Zucca
This is a quick, easy, and tasty Italian pasta recipe combining spaghetti with a creamy pumpkin sauce.
Large skillet/ frypan
spaghetti (or any pasta you like, eg fusili, penne, etc)
(approx 1 cup or 300g)
(approx 1 cup or 300ml)
(approx ½ cup or 150ml)
dry white wine
(approx ⅓ cup or 100ml)
parmesan cheese, grated
dry chilli flakes
In a large skillet, heat the olive oil (not too hot!).
Add the pumpkin, salt and chilli, stir continuously so pumpkin does not colour.
When the pumpkin has softened, add the white wine (this helps to soften the pumpkin and reduce the oiliness).
Add the napoli sauce and stir in well. Then add the cream and stir in well.
Taste for seasoning.
Stir the spaghetti (or other pasta) through the sauce.
Serve immediately while hot, and garnish with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese.
* Napoli sauce is sometimes called Neapolitan or Napoletana - it's really just an Italian tomato-based sauce for pasta, often used in pasta dishes.
