Author Notes: This dish is deeply seasonal and extremly conforting. It is perfect for a holiday/weekend brunch or breakfast. Hazelnuts and pumkin are just lovely together but almonds or walnuts would work fine, too. I call for good parmigiano here, but feel free to play with other hard cheeses with a decisive flavor. breadandbreakfast
