Butternut Squash Ideas
I've had a squash in the fridge I finally cut up and roasted last night, intending to do something with it for dinner tonight.
I always use squash in the same ways: Soup, risotto, an arugula salad with blue cheese...
Looking for something new and inspiring. We're weight watching so something not too rich either would be great....
Any new and exciting ideas? Thanks!
Try a lasagna with it.
Sautee chopped onions, add sage or oregano and mix with butternut squash.
Layer with cooked butternut squash, prosciutto, fresh mozzarella, cream and lasagna noodles and bake 10 - 15 minutes at 350.
I like it kind of free-form, rather than a tightly layered traditional lasagne, but either way it's a wonderful treat
A friend of mine tossed it with some pasta and feta and a little olive oil. It tasted really good. You could use a whole grain pasta or use Barilla Plus pasta to make it more weight watching friendly.
Enchiladas or taco salad - we often put squash in Mexican food. Goes great with black beans.
I did a side dish (with a fritatta) with carmelized onions (low fat variety), roasted squash, a bit of stock, thyme and mint that worked well. Served iwth a green salad.
They go in curries too.
Also have seen on a pizza type dough, with a bit of feta.
I like mixing it with wild rice and toasted pecans. Serves well with lean pork or chicken with a mustard/maple glaze.
puree it with sweet potatoes, some maple syrup, bourbon, cream, cinnamon, and salt. it is great for thanksgiving
