Pumpkin Dessert Recipes
Pumpkins are native to Mexico but are grown throughout the world.  Today, in fact, more pumpkins are grown in Italy than in America. It is the people of the Italian region of Veneto that cherish the pumpkin the most.  Their local pumpkin, marina di Chioggia, also known as sea pumpkin, after it's native town, is the most popular.  The pumpkin is bland but the flesh is an ideal ingredient for the sweet and savory creations of Italian cuisine, such as pumpkin tortelloni, ravioli, and pumpkin fettuccine alfredo.  Here we present some of the many Italian desserts that can be made with pumpkin.
