It's the beginning of fall and various pumpkin recipes are starting to appear on websites and magazine. It made me think of sharing this easy and quick Kobocha recipe today. Kabocha is sometimes referred to as Japanese pumpkin or Kabocha squash in the US. It's a very nutritious vegetable with a very sweet flavor, even sweeter than butternut squash and it is rich in beta carotene. I used Korean seasoning called Gochujuang (hot pepper paste) for flavoring this dish.

I have many variation of the meat sauce recipes but this is definitely one of my favorite. Remember to get some fresh Parmesan cheese and grate it right before eating.

It's actually not that difficult to make delicious tonkatsu at home so give it a try!
