With very little effort on your part, you can enjoy a healthy home-cooked meal that tastes like you slaved away in the kitchen for hours.
In a medium-sized pot, cook the olive oil, sage, garlic, and onion over medium heat, until the onion softens, about 4-5 minutes.
Stir in the Arborio rice, and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes. Transfer the rice to a lightly greased slow cooker, and stir in the vegetable broth, salt, and pepper.
To make the roasted pumpkin, cut a sugar pumpkin in half, and scoop out the seeds with a spoon. Drizzle the pumpkin halves with 1 tablespoon olive oil, and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and 1 teaspoon dried sage. Roast at 350° for 80-90 minutes, or until fork-tender. Once roasted, remove the pumpkin from the oven, and let cool. Once cooled, remove the outer skin, and use a fork to cut the roasted pumpkin into chunks.
