Both of these dishes started off in the same way - in a frying pan, I heated a little olive oil, and added a chopped onion, some chopped pumpkin and some chopped sweet potato, and fried until tender. I was planning on tossing this through pasta for both of us, but as I cooked this mix of vegies, it put the idea of making a pumpkin and chick pea curry.
Since Janet doesnt like curry, I took half of the vegie mix out of the pan and popped it into a seperate pan with some bacon.
I then tossed this through the wholemeal pasta I had already cooked and bingo - bacon & pumpkin pasta
With the remaining vegies in the original pan, I added some kofta curry paste and a small tin of chick peas....
and there you have it, pumpkin & chick pea curry with wholemeal pasta!
