Warm Lamb Pumpkin and Pesto Salad

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by The Flying Chef

This is a very quick and easy meal to put together, it is healthy, tastes great and also makes for a reasonably light meal. I always make more pumpkin as i like to make pumpkin soup the next day, although this time I did try a new recipe for the pumpkin which I really enjoyed I will be posting that one over the next few days. You will see from the photo I accidentally over cooked the lamb I got side tracked I much prefer my lamb quite pink in the middle.

I adjusted this recipe to suit my family likes. Swap the mixed grilled vegetable for tomatoes and avocado. I also added a little fettuccine and extra pesto. We will be having this one again.
