Start this recipe by heating the oven to 200`c and grill the bacon till crispy and brown. Remove from the oven and put aside. Next, heat the oil in a pan and fry together the onion, garlic and herbs for 2 minutes. Add in the diced pumpkin and cook for 15 minutes until soft. Transfer the mixture to a liquidizer and blitz together with enough of the stock and cream if using to create a nice rich pumpkin puree. Cook the pasta and toss with the pumpkin cream. Serve the pasta in 2 bowls. Chop the crispy bacon and serve on top of the pasta along with the sliced spring onion.
