Pumpkin and Parmesan cream recipe

Today you have touched a version of a recipe from pumpkin and parmesan cream that we put very often in a restaurant where he worked. Although, I think I do better, especially for the mixture of herbs that I put, since I get a very good freshness in that sweetness of the pumpkin.

On the other hand, if you like these herbs, you can change them for others, such as tarragon, rosemary, etc. As for cheese, it is a very good point, and it must be taken into account when putting less salt, since Parmesan gives us some additional salt.
