Butternut squash recipe a great success

leave a comment »

I just made this recipe and I have to say that it’s tremendous. Delicious, of course—that’s the point, after all—but also a very interesting combination of flavors that I’ve not had before but work together quite nicely. That‘s the payoff: a novel taste. Delicious goes without saying: that’s just the ante.

I used pignolas rather than walnuts, but I’ll definitely be making it again, and I’ll try walnuts next time. I cut back a bit on the butter, of course, and half as much nuts as called for. But really quite good.

Other notes on my version: I tossed the squash with Lucini Fiery Chili EV Olive Oil and then roasted it. I never peel butternut squash (or eggplant or carrots or most other things): it’s a great flaming pain and completely unnecessary. I used quite a bit of black pepper. Otherwise, I pretty much followed the recipe.

Amazingly good.
