Preparation steps

1.

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Rinse the pumpkin, quarter lengthwise, and remove the seeds. Wrap the pumpkin in the bacon, and place on a baking sheet. Add the bay leaves to the pan. Halve the garlic and add to the pan. Season the pumpkin with pepper, and roast for 45 minutes until the pumpkin is soft.

2.

Toast the pumpkin seeds in a dry pan. Remove the pumpkin from the oven, and sprinkle the pumpkin seeds over the stop. Sprinkle with sea salt. This goes well served with a tomato salad.
