Red pumpkin is an ingredient popularly used in continental cuisine, in the preparation of not just soups, but also sauces, dips, toppings and sandwiches too. Here, in this mouth-watering creation, it is used to make a creamy, herby sauce for penne. You might think that pumpkin is not your kids’ favourite, but they will love it in this form, because it makes the dish pleasantly colourful and creamy, without the addition of cheese or cream. The Penne in Pumpkin Sauce also stays fresh in the dabba for more than 4 hours, so your kids can open their boxes for a lovely surprise in the afternoon. Pack Chocolate Chip and Mango Muffin ( Tiffin Recipe) for a sweet ending to the lunch break.
