We cut the pumpkin in half and place it on a baking tray (covered with greaseproof paper) with the part of the cut down. Roast at 180 ºC, with heat up and down, for 30 minutes or until tender.
When it is warm, remove the pulp and mash it with a fork to get a puree. Heat a little oil in a large frying pan and sauté the peeled and grated garlic cloves. Add the pumpkin puree, the vegetable broth, the soy sauce, the Tabasco sauce and season to taste.
If we want a sauce with a smooth and creamy appearance, we can shred it on a robot or with an arm mixer. If this is not the case, cook the whole for 10-15 minutes or until all the ingredients are well incorporated.
Meanwhile we cook the pasta following the manufacturer’s instructions. Once ready we serve it with the pumpkin sauce above. Grate the cheddar or mimolette cheese and serve immediately, garnishing the plate with a little chopped fresh chives.
