Remove top of pumpkin by cutting a circle (3 inches in diameter) around stem with small sharp knife. Scrape out seeds and any loose fibres from inside the pumpkin with a spoon (including top of pumpkin, reserve seeds for another use if desired.) Season inside of pumpkin with 1/2 tsp. salt. Wrap pumpkin in foil and roast a medium oven for about 40 minutes or until slightly soft to the touch remove from the foil.
Mix together cheese in another bowl. About an hour before you are ready to serve add cheese to cooked pumpkin and cover pumpkin with top and put in an oiled small roasting pan. Brush outside of pumpkin all over with olive oil. Bake until pumpkin is tender and filling has melted about 30 minutes. Enjoy drizzled with Squisito white truffle oil on top.
