Preparation -- 30 minutes

Peel the potatoes and chop into coarse pieces. Cook the potatoes in a medium-sized pan, the exact time depends on the type of potatoes and size of the pieces. Meanwhile peel the pumpkin, remove the seeds and divide in chunks.

Cook the pumpkin in boiling water until it's softened enough to create a puree. Peel the carrot and divide into small cubes. Peel and finely chop the onion and garlic cloves.

Heat a bit of olive oil in a skillet and sauté the onion, garlic and carrot for a few minutes. Add the ground beef and cook a few minutes more.

Season with pepper and salt and divide the mixture over the bottom of the oven dish.
