The octopus drives me crazy, and lately has given me experience new combinations, resulting in these octopus and cheese skewers with pumpkin that has been a revelation.
The creamy smoky cheese goes well with a good cooked octopus, roasted squash and creamy smooth functions as basis of all flavors. Also you can get some taste, leaving more or less thick cream or lightening its sweetness adding potato before the mash.
