• 1-3/4 cup puff pastry – ready made is fine
• 1 egg yolk beaten with 1 tsp water (to brush pastry)
• 3/4 cup grated smoked cheddar (or tasty cheddar)
• salt
• black pepper
• 4 sage leaves, chopped finely plus a few leaves for garnish

Preparation:
Preheat oven to 425°F. Gently fry pumpkin in the olive oil for 5 minutes.

Roll out pastry to approximately 6” x 10” (15 x 25cm) rectangle on baking paper on a large oven tray. Score a 1/2” border with a knife cutting only part way through and brush the border with the egg. Sprinkle half the cheese within the border, add the pumpkin, season, and sprinkle sage over the top. Bake 20 minutes, then scatter the remaining cheese over the top and cook an additional 5 minutes.

Garnish with more fresh sage leaves and serve.
