Heat your oven to 400. While the oven is heating, remove the seeds from the pomegranate by cutting it in half and hitting it with a spoon. The seeds will just fall out.

Once the oven is heated cut the pumpkin in half, scoop out the seeds then bake for 30 minutes.

After 30 min scoop out the pumpkin into a bowl and mash with a fork.

Add the egg yolk (putting the separated egg white in a small dish) nutmeg, Parmesan cheese, and 1/2 tsp salt. Mix well.

In a large pot add 4 quarts of water and 1/2 Tbsp of salt. Bring to a boil.

On a piece of parchment paper lay out the won ton wrappers and place a Tbsp of the pumpkin mixture in the center.

Using a small brush, brush the egg white on all 4 sides then fold in half on a diagonal.
