Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Makes: 6 servings

1/2 kilogram pumpkin
1 small tub sun dried tomatoes purchased from the deli or 150-200 grams
1 packet pine nuts (<100grams)
2 slabs feta purchased from the deli or 150grams
250-300grams baby spinach leaves, fresh
1 jar leggo's pesto pasta sauce
300g fettuccine pasta wholemeal

Preheat over to 180 degrees C.

Peel and cut pumpkin into small squares approx 1cm x1cm. Place on baking tray and bake for 10 - 15 minutes.

Boil water in jug.

Place fettuccine pasta in large stock pot and turn on stove top hot plate.

Poor boiling water into stock pot until it covers all pasta (~500ml). Cook pasta for approx 8 minutes.

Turn on grill and place foil layer over grilling tray.
