PUMPKIN, ADLESTROP CHEESE AND CAVOLO NERO CRUMBLE

MAIN DISH / VEGETABLES / AUTUMN

Bold enough to be served as a standalone lunch or supper dish, this recipe is also a great accompaniment to roast chicken, pork or lamb. Although we use pumpkin in this recipe, it will work beautifully with any variety of sweet autumnal squash.
