Ingredients Serves 6

  • 1.5 cup pumpkin puree

  • 1 onion
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1.5 tsp salt
  • 1 lb/450 g shell-shaped pasta
  • 1 cup coconut milk


  1. For this recipe you will need 1.5 cup of pumpkin puree. Personally I prefer homemade pumpkin puree, but you can use canned pumpkin from the store.
    To make pumpkin puree, peel about 17oz/500 g pumpkin, scoop out the seeds, cut the flesh into cubes.
    Place the chopped pumpkin into a pan, cover with water, bring to a boil and cook over low heat for 15-20 minutes, or until tender. Drain.

    Alternatively you can substitute onion with 1/3 teaspoon of asafoetida powder. Just fry asafoetida together with thyme for one minute.
