  1. Step 1

    Use a spiraliser or a large sharp knife to cut the pumpkin into thin noodles.
  2. Step 2

    Place 1/4 cup of the sage and half the rocket in a food processor with garlic, almond and pecorino or parmesan. Process until finely chopped. With the motor running, add oil in a thin, steady stream until well combined. Season.
  3. Step 3

    Melt the butter in a large frying pan over medium heat until foaming. Add the remaining sage and cook, turning, for 1-2 mins or until crisp. Use a slotted spoon to transfer to a plate. Season the butter in the pan. Add the pumpkin and cook, gently tossing, for 5 mins or until just tender. Remove from heat.
  4. Step 4

    Drizzle the pumpkin with a little of the sage pesto. Divide among serving plates. Sprinkle with the fried sage. Top with the brie and remaining rocket. Drizzle with the remaining sage pesto.
