Brussels sprouts, pumpkin and blue cheese pasta
- 400g pumpkin, peeled, diced
- 16 Brussels sprouts, quartered
- 250g penne pasta
- ½ cup reduced-salt vegetable stock
- ⅓ cup Light Philadelphia Cream for Cooking
- 40g soft blue cheese, chopped (we used Castello)
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
- 4 cups mixed salad leaves, to serve
- 4 tablespoons of vinaigrette (made with 2 parts balsamic vinegar to 1 part olive oil)
1 Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a large baking tray with baking paper. Place diced pumpkin and Brussels sprouts on the prepared tray and lightly spray with olive oil. Roast for 20—25 minutes, or until tender and lightly golden.
2 Meanwhile cook pasta in a large saucepan according to packet instructions, or until al dente. Drain and return pasta to pan. Add stock and cheeses to pasta, stirring gently to heat through.
3 Fold roasted Brussels sprouts and pumpkin through pasta. Divide pasta among 4 serving plates, garnish with chives and serve with salad.
