Zucca (Pumpkin) Cooking Class

A few weeks ago, I went to another class with Cooking with Lucas and a group of friends.  It was a pumpkin cooking class, so we made everything with Zucca!!  (Using squash interchangeably with pumpkin, as is normal here in Italy).  We made Focaccia Bread topped with Onions and Pumpkin (SO good- I think my fave!!!), Zuccamisu (Tiramisu using pumpkin... I took the pics for Lucas to put on his website, check out the link to see more pics :) ), Pork Chops with Pumpkin Sauce, Pumpkin Ravioli, and an easy Pumpkin Gelato (using the same ingredients from the Pumpkin Tiramisu).  I'll just photo bomb you with pics now.

Some ingredients for the Zuccamisu.
