I love Italy, its culture, architecture, music, but most importantly, I love Italian Food. In my house constantly live pasta, pizza, lasagna, tiramisu, Caprese salad and many other dishes. But I am always looking for new, interesting recipe. My classmate lives in the North of Italy, near Mantua. She and her husband have a house and garden in which they grow incredibly delicious pumpkin, which is cooked a pie. I could not pass up a new international recipe and repeated it in the kitchen. The result – a delicious, crumbly, slightly salty crust and tender souffle of pumpkin with spices. Try it and you will not remain indifferent...
