The pumpkin that ate my kitchen

MalinDC | Oct 27, 2006 03:27 PM

I had never seen a sweet pumpkin before. So when I went to the farmers market excited to make the kadoo bowrani recipe that I found on this board I just asked the nice woman for a sweet pumpkin. She pointed me to a table that had some nice looking pumpkins. I chose the smallest one (15 lbs). I, of course, hadn't brought the recipe with me so I didn't realize I would only need 2 or so lbs. Now I have a lot of pumpkin left over to cook up this weekend.

I'm planning to make a ravioli using the kadoo bowrani meat and pumpkin recipe but I'm not sure the best way to recreate the yogurt sauce flavor. Possibly ricotta and mascarpone mixed together? What do you think?

I'm also thinking of making some pumpkin gnocchi. However, as I already have so much pumpkin left over in my fridge (there are only two of us) I would like to freeze the gnocchi. Do you think I should freeze it before or after I cook it?

Any suggestions for a third dish? I'm thinking that I'm going to make at least 3 things as I have about 11 lbs of pumpkin left. Any ideas for a pumpkin novice?
