Pasta with Pumpkin and Parma Ham

Welcome in autumn!
I believe that autumn is magic, because you can see how many colors there are within yellow and brown.


I love colors,  that's why I don't like using black and white pics, I guess you can use black and white colors just if you need to communicate something sepecific that goes outside of the colors and to underline the subject.
Pictures like the one above without any color loose their meaning, becoming just a melanchonic pics. Colors, instead, give a meaning and a feeling depending from the viewer, for example this picture brings up to my mind a wonderful movie: What Dream May Come, an union of love and colors.

"What's true in our minds is true, whether some people know it or not."
What Dream May Come

Going back to food, today I'd propose the autumn vegetable par excellence : pumpkin!
Do you mind how to prepare pasta with pumpkin, let's try together! 


(2 people)

300 g pumpkin
150 g pasta
100 g Parma Ham
extravergin olive oil
vegetable stock
Vinagre glaze to decorate

Place the pumpkin in a pan, add a bit of water and let boil it. Once ready add the stock and let cook other 10 min. Blend the pumkin to have a cream.
In an other pan, cook the extravergin olive oil with a bit of onion and hot pepper, add the parma ham sliced and cook for 30 sec. Add the pumpkin cream, cook and mix.
Cook the pasta al dente (turn off the burner 3 min in advance) add 3 tablespoon of parmesan cheese and pan-fry.

Now, it's time to eat!
