  • In a medium pot, bring 500 ml of water to a boil. Add the pumpkin and cook until it is completely soft.
  • Once the pumpkin is fully cooked, drain the water and mash the pumpkin using a fork. Set aside to cool down slightly.
  • Cook the pasta in boiling salted water but drain it about 2 minutes before it is completely cooked. This will allow us to cook it further in the coming steps. Reserve ½ cup of the pasta cooking water.
  • In a pan over medium heat, add the olive oil. Follow by adding the curry leaves and cook until they splatter.
  • Add the pumpkin seeds and cook until they are toasted and turn slightly brown.
  • Now, lower the heat and add the sliced garlic. Thinly sliced garlic has a tendency to burn, so you must keep stirring and work fairly quickly.
  • Once the garlic has turned beautifully golden brown, add the the reserved pasta water.
  • Add the pumpkin puree and mix well to combine and make a smooth sauce. Now, add the cooked pasta to the pumpkin sauce and mix well to combine the pasta completely. Taste and season with salt.
  • Transfer your aromatic Pumpkin Aglio e Olio to a plate and enjoy it with a glass of white wine!
