To prepare the pie pumpkin and potatoes, I prefer to cook the pumpkin in the oven, because it dries very slightly and candy, giving the flan a very tasty flavor, especially, reducing to zero the risk of an excess of moisture. 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 and smoked Provelette inside are a stroke of genius: the seeds are crisp and tasty and provolone dissolves, with smoked hints, the sweet taste of the pudding. Enjoy this easy pumpkin pie and potatoes for an aperitif or a light dinner, you will not regret. Have a good day!

MATCHING: "Pozzodorico" is a white wine produced from Cellar Cincinnatus, nel Lazio, Cori (province of Latina). A wine that is obtained from an autochthonous Lazio grape, the Bellone, retrieved by this cooperative Winery, bringing together more than two hundred members. Pozzodorico is fermented in oak barrels, smells gently of vanilla with touches of smoke, which result from the flow of wine in the Woods ; the taste is soft with a contained acid; good gustatory pertistenza. With this recipe, the acidity marries well the savory tastes and attenuates the fatty ones, while the aroma of the provola agrees with the smoky hints of the wine.
If you want, you can follow the same procedure using other vegetables, such as broccoli, artichokes or cauliflower.
