Ok, so the title is clumsy, but the sentiment is similar. My real question is, if you make a recipe, and don't have a camera to document it....can you still post it?
I'm going to give it a whirl, because damnit if I didn't make one tasty Acorn Squash Pasta...
Thursday night after dinner I decided to roast up my acorn squash from Boston Organics. It was a preplanning move... I was going to CT for the weekend. When I return to Boston on Sunday nights I like to be able to whip something up quickly for dinner so I can get into my 'before a workday' routine. I was also expecting a Boston Organics delivery the following week - so I wanted to use up my produce before it all went bad. I roasted the squash and then stored it in a tupperware in the fridge.
Upon returning home on Sunday, I looked in the fridge to find my squash, and some already cooked pasta in a neighboring tupperware. I wanted to clean out the fridge so I decided to combine them.
I put a tablespoon of butter in a skillet over medium. Once the butter had melted then started to bubble I added 2 cloves of chopped garlic. To the garlic butter, I added about 1/4 (1/2 of a regular acorn squash - mine was enormous!) of cooked squash cut up into cubes. I seasoned it with salt, pepper, a little more garlic, and some dried sage. I tasted it and decided it needed a little sweet...so I added a little maple syrup...about a teaspoon. Upon a second tasting, realized it needed a little acid. I added about a 1/8th - 1/4 cup of white wine and let it reduce.
I added the cooked pasta to the skillet - tossed it to warm through, then added it to a bowl with some dried cranberries and parmesan cheese on top.
It was absolutely delicious - and I can't stop thinking about it! I'll definitely have to make it again and take its picture for you all!
