Toss pump­kin with a driz­zle of oil on pre­pared tray. Sea­son with salt and pep­per and roast for 15-20 min­utes, un­til ten­der. Turn once to en­sure even cook­ing. When pump­kin has 10 min­utes’ cook time re­main­ing, pre­pare the risotto.

Bring stock to a sim­mer in a small pot then re­move from heat, cover and keep warm (if us­ing stock cubes/pow­der, dis­solve in boil­ing wa­ter in a small, heat­proof bowl). Heat a good driz­zle of oil in a large, heavy-based pot on medium heat. Add but­ter, onion and sage and cook for 3 min­utes, un­til soft­ened.
