Velvety pumpkin soup (pumpkin cream) is a soup made from pumpkin, usually potatoes are added, sometimes carrots and cooked with vegetable broth. There are those who add cream, I prefer not, it is already tasty and perfect without cream, better not to add unnecessary fat! I often prepare it in autumn! Read more fall recipes

  2. Remove the sausages from their outer casing, crumble them and brown them in a pan with a drizzle of oil for a few minutes. Let's keep them aside.
  3. Meanwhile the potatoes are cooked, remove the skin and mash them with a potato masher in a large bowl.
  4. Add 30 gr of butter, grated Grana Padano, eggs, salt and pepper to the mashed potatoes, mix.
  5. We put a sheet of parchment paper on the bottom of the pan, then butter the pan and distribute a layer of breadcrumbs
  6. We divide the patete mixture into two halves: one half we distribute on the bottom and at the edges.
  7. Add the filling: sausages and provola cubes (dry, or scamorza)
  8. We cover the pie with the remaining potato mixture distributed in tufts.
