Nothing says autumn like these funny looking gourds-- but did you know that pumpkins are good for more than just jack-o-lanterns and pie? They can be used in many different sweet and savory dishes, including pasta dishes, breads, soups, and cakes-- and their seeds can be roasted and spiced. To prepare a pumpkin for cooking, slice it in half and remove the seeds and pulp. If roasting the seeds, rinse and let dry. The two halves can then be roasted whole on a baking sheet, at about 375º until tender.
