marina di chioggia pumpkin ... recipes please

My friend has been growing a squash that she bought and was unsure what variety it was untill today.

It turns out it is a 'marina di chioggia ' which is a Heirloom veriety from Italy.

Has anyone got any tried and tested recipes for this pumpkin please that I can pass on to her ?

It can be used in pumpkin ravioli with the filling made with parmesan and crushed amaretti.  Sauce of beurre noisette cooked with fresh sage leaves.

thanks , my instinct was that it would make some lovely ravioli , I had  forgotten how good ammeretti was with pumpkin MsP .

And Grandmadamada , I have cooked little pumpkins just like that many times and had not forgotten about it untill you reminded me.

I think a gnocchi might be good as well .

Any more ideas ?
