Cavatappi with Roasted Butternut Squash

Here’s the picture-perfect autumn dish: Cavatappi with Roasted Butternut Squash. It’s almost macaroni and cheesy in texture, although the only cheese involved is a smallish amount of good quality Parmesan. I absolutely love this pasta as a dinner party starter, or as a main course with a salad and some good bread, or served alongside roast chicken or pork.

Good luck dodging raindrops this week … see you at Sendiks! : )

Butternut Squash Risotto with Bacon & Sage

In honor of the Fall Extravaganza, I have here today a quintessential autumn recipe. You’d be hard pressed to find ingredients more fall-like than butternut squash and fresh sage, right? This is the perfect dish to make when there’s a chill in the air, and a delicious accompaniment to most any type of roasted meat (I’m thinking chicken or pork), but seared sea scallops would be lovely as well.
