Squash and ricotta pasta bake Added in two red peppers and roasted them with the butternut squash; added in large onion & chilli flakes with the garlic. Used 3 very generous tbsp ricotta. Added in 80g chopped kale (which worked well) The sage leaves on top were delicious - use lots. Next time: use a very large butternut squash, add in even more veg, e.g. courgettes &/or mushrooms. I served it with steamed broccoli, but salad or green beans might be better.
Butternut Squash with Pecans and Blue Cheese: This has many strings to its bow: it serves as a vegetarian alternative to the Christmas turkey; it gussies up a plate of cold leftover turkey; it adds the right balance of mellow warmth and tang to any plain wintry dish; it is a good whole meal on days when you just feel fleshed-out.
