Pumpkin pesto

Sometimes the ideas come from the fridge, so I gave a look then I found grilled asian pumpkin left, a bunch of basil and puff pastry which I bought the day before. Well, well,,, Maybe we should try something different 😉 . I want a tart of pumpkin, I also found some mushroom left. I think we have enough main ingredients for this delicious dish.
