the pasta chronicles  
my second pasta creation in melbourne.



i really, really liked this one. pumpkin spice fettuccini was boiled with salt, chilled in cold water and fried along with butter, garlic, pumpkin pieces, onion bits, mushrooms and spinach. and a tiny bit of salt and mixed herbs to taste. i added chopped ham as well, because the recipe i modified had bacon in it. but on hindsight, the ham could have been left out, because the flavours were already quite awesome - which would make a great dish for vegetarians. a little extra virgin olive oil was added after the heat was turned off.

notes:

1. cook garlic and pumpkin first, pumpkin takes longer to soften. if they're getting too dry but aren't soft enough yet, add a little water. only a little! and cover, cover, cover!

2. add onion bits, mushrooms, spinach last. in that order.

3. fettuccini goes in the pan between 1 and 2!

:)
