"The last Samurai" Pasta: a first dish inspired by autumn that uses a typical vegetable of this season: the pumpkin. Paccheri let you enjoy the best delicate cream of pumpkin, sweet on the palate, with the crisp of bacon and the aromatic touch of semi-seasoned pecorino.
Preparation difficulty: low
Preparation time: 1 hour
Cooking time: 2 hours for bacon, 15 minutes for the pumpkin cream
Place 6 slices of bacon between two sheets of parchment paper and bake them at 80 ° for 2 hours. Julienne the onion, brown it in the oil, add the bacon cut into small pieces, pumpkin cubed and cover with two cups of water. The most important thing is to slightly brown the onion and bacon in order not to burn them.
After 15 minutes blend the pumpkin in a blender.
After having cooked the pasta put it in a dish with grated cheese and add a little cooking water so as to form a creamy sauce.
Serve by placing the pumpkin cream at the bottom of the dish, cover with the pasta and finishing by crumbling the bacon over the top.
