Paccheri Filled with Pumpkin, Robiola and Dried Fruit
1 wedge pumpkin, about 500 g (Mantova variety, weight with peel)
200 g Nonno Nanni Robiola
20 g blanched almonds
20 g walnut pieces
1 handful toasted pine nuts
30 g grated parmesan
half white onion
chopped parsley to taste
partly skimmed milk, as needed
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
salt to taste
Nonno Nanni Robiola is a fresh cheese that is extremely easy to spread and has an intense, pleasant taste.
Peel the pumpkin and cut into cubes. Fry the thinly sliced onions in a pan with oil. Add the cubes of pumpkin, season with salt and cook until soft.
The filling for the paccheri: use a blender to purée the pumpkin with the Nonno Nanni Robiola (thinned out with a little milk), grated parmesan, dried fruit and parsley.
Meanwhile, boil the paccheri, drain when still very firm to the bite and drizzle with a little extra virgin olive oil. Using a small teaspoon, stuff the paccheri with the prepared filling. Spoon some milk on the bottom of a baking dish and arrange the paccheri in the dish, brush them with a little of the leftover filling thinned out with milk, sprinkle with a little grated parmesan and bake in a preheated 200°C oven for 15 minutes.
Put them under the broiler for a couple of minutes until they turn slightly golden.
