Line pastry with paper, fill with dried beans or rice. Bake at 200°C for 15 minutes, remove paper and beans, bake further 12 minutes or until lightly browned; cool.
Spoon rice into pastry case, top with half the vegetable filling; pour over half the pumpkin filling. Top with remaining vegetable filling, cheese, then remaining pumpkin filling. Bake, uncovered, at 180°C for about 30 minutes or until firm to touch.
