Roasted Pumpkin with Rosemary and Thyme is a perfect side dish for most any meal.
Fall is one of my favorite times of the year, of course I say that no matter what season we happen to be in. One of the reasons I love Fall is because of the cooler weather. The other is the abundance of pumpkin and squash that is available at the local farms and markets.
We belong to a couple of CSA groups. I love being a involved with a CSA. I know I am eating food that is sustainably grown and that I am helping local farmers.
Our Fall CSA shares various pumpkins and squashes with us. We recently received a Cheese Pumpkin. You may have been seeing these beauties in the grocery store recently.
Cheese pumpkins are flatter and often a duller orange color than the pumpkins we all purchase to carve up. They are great for roasting and for making a puree out of.
Did you realize there are over 30 varieties of pumpkin? I didn’t until I started researching pumpkin. Here is a fun fact: a pumpkin is technically a fruit because pumpkin is fleshy and has seeds in it and it comes from a flower.
Recently, I shared an article called “What Is A Sugar Pumpkin and what do I do with it?” I have really been in the pumpkin cooking mood! I was so happy to create this Roasted Pumpkin with Rosemary and Thyme recipe.

In a medium bowl, place the pumpkin, olive oil and spices. Stir well.
