Recipe by -Sylvie-
I was clearing out all the supermarket recipe leaflets and cards and all the cut out recipes that kept piling up in my kitchen. I thought I'd post the ones that I liked the look and sound of here, to share and for future reference. This way you might find something you like and my kitchen gets decluttered! If you try it before me let me know what you think. This one is from the monthly Asda magazine. It's cheap to make and sounds delicious, I think. The weight of the pumpkin refers to it peeled and deseeded.
