Pumpkin mystery

My husband goes off to the doctor a comes home with a pumpkin. I'd like to think that the doctor prescribed lots of fresh fruits and vegitables, but I know that is not the case. However, he ran into a colleague who has a garden and from time to time gives him some wonderful items from his garden. In thanks, I am presently working on writing a recipe for zucchini bread into French with metric measurements. It appears that what is common in the U.S.,zucchini bread, is non-

existant in France.

Now, what to do with that Pumpkin? Usually I make a wonderful soup in the Fall and Winter, but it's too warm for that. I used to write recipes for a place in LA and sell the food items there, so creating a new recipe is nothing new to me.

My first idea is pumpkin raviolis. However, my second idea is pumpkin gazbacho. I'll let you know later what this pumpkin will morph into along with the recipe. In the meantime, if any of you have some pumpkin recipes you want to share, feel free to share.
