  • 2 eggs - whisked

  1. Set the oven to warm to 180 degrees
  2. To a bowl add the mashed pumpkin, ricotta, eggs, pine nuts and sage and mix to combine
  3. Season with salt and pepper
  4. Grease a pie dish and spoon in the pumpkin mixture. Use a spatula to evenly distribute it around the dish
  5. Sprinkle the top with the semolina and bake for approximately 25 minutes until the top starts to brown
  6. Remove from the oven and rest for 5 -10 minutes prior to slicing to serve
  7. Slice to serve and top each piece with pieces of feta - I used my home made feta, and then drizzle very sparingly with a few drops of good quality balsamic vinegar.
