I thought I had a potato to use, but did not, so I made this with all pumpkin.<br/>Although I cooked the pumpkin in the microwave I followed and used everything else as per the recipe, and this result was perfect.<br/>Lovely way to cook pumpkin and the crispy sage and butter mix was just wonderful on top of the pumpkin.<br/>We loved the pumpkin made like this, and tomorrow I will trying it with the potato after a supermarket trip!<br/>Thanks Pat a lovely, unusual and very different way to serve pumpkin as a side, that we really enjoyed with dinner.
