Creamy Pumpkin, Parmesan & Herb Bake

I think this may be my last pumpkin recipe for the month of October, but I can’t promise anything 😉
This Creamy Pumpkin, Parmesan & Herb Bake is such a simple recipe and works a dream in a casserole dish. A glorious one pan wonder!

The pumpkin is literally cut into wedges with skin and seeds intact and roasted (lid on) with a few knobs of butter, a splash of stock or water and aromatics until tender. Then it is just a matter of adding cream, parmesan and a few more herbs before roasting until golden and bubbling.
Delicious as a vegetarian meal served with a side salad or as a brilliant side to meat dish.
