Pumpkin Pie is one of the most great ligurian and italian recipe.

Ingredients for 4 people:

300 gr flour, ½ cup white wine, 1 kg pumpkin, 2 onions, 20 grams of dried mushrooms, 100 gr of grated parmesan, breadcrumbs, Salt, pepper, marjoram, 1 clove garlic, Extra virgin olive oil.

Prepare the pastry mixing flour, some water, salt and ½ cup of white wine. The result is soft dough; let it rest for half an hour.

Soak dried mushrooms in a bowl (warm water) and leave them there while preparing the rest.

Peel, remove the seeds and slice the pumpkin and 1 onion and make them brown slowly in a covered pan. When everything is cooked, mash the pumpkin until well chopped and then let it cool.

Slice and brown the other onion with the mushrooms (which have been squeezed). Then, add the pumpkin and cook everything. When all is cooked add eggs, Parmesan, a pinch of marjoram, salt, pepper and a pinch of bread crumbs. Mix everything with a spoon.

Roll out the dough with a rolling pin and place on a baking pan. Then, pour the pumpkin mixture uniformly and sprinkle with some breadcrumbs.

Cook for about 45 minutes at 180 degrees and then enjoy!.
