Toss pumpkin strips with olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Arrange pumpkin strips in one layer in a baking dish.
Follow with a layer of bacon and repeat 1 more time.
Finish with one more layer of pumpkin on top.
In a medium-sized saucepot add coconut milk and spices. Simmer for 5 minutes over low-medium heat, enough for the spices to open and be fragrant.
Pour the sauce over the pumpkin and bacon layers. Add olives.
Feta cheese and thyme sprigs. Bake at 425 F for 25-35 minutes. Once done, remove the thyme sprigs and add fresh ones instead when serving.
Enjoy as a side dish or as a main course!
