Total Time40 mins
Servings: 1 cups pasta sauce


  • 1 Cup roast pumpkin butternut or squash
  • 1 -2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Onion diced
  • 2 Rashers bacon - Optional extra
  • 1 Can tomato puree or passata approximately 400ml
  • 1- 2 Tbsp Sour cream - Optional extra


  • If you don't already have some roast pumpkin, then dice some pumpkin and get it in the oven. (I usually roast extra pumpkin whenever we have a roast so that I have it on hand for recipes like this)
  • Heat oil in a pan and sauté the onion until soft, translucent and fragrant. (The more oil you use, the thicker the sauce will become)
  • If you choose to use bacon, add it now, brown
  • Puree or mash the roast pumpkin, add to the pan
  • Add tomato puree
  • Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes (sauce should reduce and thicken)
  • If you choose stir in sour cream
