Roasted Pumpkin


It’s October 31st which means Halloween is here!! Even though it’s mostly celebrated in the United States and in Canada, also Italians like to dress up and party while children usually go to people’s houses saying “Trick or Treat”.

But Halloween’s symbol is, of course, the pumpkin because of Jack O’ Lantern legend. So today’s recipe couldn’t be  about anything different than a pumpkin.


  • Pumpkin (choose as much as you prefer, just keep in mind to roast only the amount of pumpkin you’re going to eat because otherwise the roasted pumpkin will get dry)
  • Cinnamon
  • Sea salt
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Pepper (if you like)
  • Rosemary


Slice the pumpkin or cut it in cubes (as you prefer) and put the slices into the tin covered with a parchment paper. Add some oil and as much rosemary, sea salt, pepper and cinnamon as you like.


Bake it in the oven at 200°C for 15-20 minutes (until it gets crispy)
