  • Preheat the oven to 220ºc / 430ºf
  • Cut the pumpkin in half and scoop out the seeds.  Use a good vegetable peeler to remove the skin and cut into slices around 2cm / 1 inch in thickness.
  • Put a pan on a medium / low heat and add the butter and slowly melt it.
  • Finely cut the garlic and sage leaves and add to the butter.  Stir well and turn the heat off.
  • Line a baking tray with tin foil.
  • Put the pumpkin slices in a large bowl, and pour over the butter, add the pepper and a pinch of salt.  Mix with your hands well to make sure the slices are coated.
  • Put the slices on to the lined baking tray and put in the oven.
  • Cook for 30 - 40 minutes until the pumpkin is soft and the edges are brown and crispy.
