Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. Cut the parsnip into bite-sized chunks. Place peeled & chopped pumpkin and parsnip on a lined oven tray with a good drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt. Toss to coat and roast until tender, 20-25 minutes.


While the veggies are roasting, finely chop the brown onion and garlic. Thinly slice the pear (see ingredients).


In a medium saucepan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium heat. Cook the onion until tender, 3-4 minutes. Add the garlic and garlic & herb seasoning and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Add the chopped tomatoes, a pinch of brown sugar, the vegetable stock powder, butter and a splash of water. Simmer until slightly thickened, 5-6 minutes. Add 1/2 the baby spinach leaves, then stir until just wilted. Season to taste.


While the sauce is simmering, combine the panko breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan cheese and a drizzle of olive oil in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper.


Transfer the roasted veggies to a baking dish, then add the tomato sauce and gently stir to combine. Sprinkle over the shredded Cheddar cheese and pangrattato. Bake it until golden, 8-10 minutes. Meanwhile, combine the pear, remaining baby spinach and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar and olive oil in a second medium bowl. Season and toss to coat.


Divide the cheesy pumpkin and veggie bake between plates. Serve with the pear salad.
