This recipe was a bit ambitious for a weeknight in our house, but is a winning combination of creamy farro and Parmesan cheese, grated butternut squash, and (perfect for holiday leftovers) diced ham. Farro contains the same amount of calories as rice, but more fiber and protein, so it’s a great nutritional choice.
This was another of Guy’s solo-parenting sheet pan suppers. Combine Italian turkey sausage, sliced packaged polenta, cubed butternut squash, and sliced mushrooms on one sheet pan, and bake.
This is one of my favorite recipes. Arrange cubed onion and butternut squash on a baking sheet, and top with chicken thighs. Roast everything together, then blend the vegetables into the soup and add the chopped chicken meat.
The chicken juices and butternut add a delicious richness to the soup. I always double this recipe so that it makes dinner for several nights.
Butternut squash is one of my favorite foods, and I love any opportunity to make it the star of a meal. For this dish, roast diced butternut squash with maple syrup and dried cranberries, and then dress it with a mixture of apple cider vinegar, shallots, and Dijon mustard. Combine with arugula, walnuts, and Parmesan cheese.
