  1. In a skillet, add olive oil and brown the ground pork with the shallot. Add fish sauce toward the end. When thoroughly cooked, put aside.
  2. Slice pumpkin in half and scoop away all the seeds. Sprinkle both halves with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Put in the oven at 350 F for 25-30 minutes. Let cool and quarter each half (8 pieces in total) then scoop out interior from the shell. Cut the fruit into bite-sized pieces.
  3. Add pumpkin pieces to the skillet with the pork. Over medium heat, add a cup of water to the ingredients, then introduce the cellophane noodles. Fold everything while cooking until noodles become translucent.
  4. Let cool. Add a tablespoon of sesame oil and juice of one lime.

Serve in a bowl.
