Pumpkin flan, potatoes and ricotta

Easy, soft, greedy, vegetarian, by season. This pumpkin flan, potatoes and ricotta is really yummy, There are no other words for it. Among other things, Today you do with pumpkin, tomorrow with broccoli, the day after tomorrow with artichokes. In short, jolly is a real recipe, to be served in small, elegant portions. Or, even in a lovely classic pan, if you are in the family, or if you want to bring a picnic or serve at a dinner between friends very informal. I bake the pumpkin in the oven, because it dries very slightly and candy, giving the flan tastes very tasty. If you do not want to turn on the oven, you can also cook the steamed pumpkin. We do not recommend, Instead, Boil the pumpkin, because it impregnerebbe of water and the flan would be soaked inside. Mixed seeds on top and smoked provoleta inside are the stroke of genius: the seeds are crispy and tasty and the provoleta dissolves with the scent of smoked sweet cobbler. Enjoy this easy pumpkin pie and potatoes for an aperitif or a light dinner.
