Cheesy Butternut Squash Pasta Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2012
Another way to prepare this is to use the frozen pureed butternut squash. It's in a box type of container that you microwave. Make a rue with butter and flour and a little milk. When thick add in butternut squash and parm cheese. Loosen with more milk if needed. I then stir in grated nutmeg and a little chopped fresh or dried sage, salt, pepper. Incorporate mixture with cooked pasta, I use shells, put into butterd dish, sprinkle with a mixture of panko, seasoned breadcrumbs, a little more parm, and melted butter. Sprinkle on to and bake 35 to 45 minutes or till bubbly and browned. Yum!

Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2013
I have not tried this recipe yet but plan on making it tomorrow. Seeing the comments about the blandness, I would like to offer up what I now plan on doing when I make this. I love quiona and it is excellent if you saute diced celery, onion and carrot. Add a little chicken broth and throw in currants, dried cranberries and diced apricots, a little cinnamon and cardamon. Add the cooked quinoa and the tomatoes if you like. Then fill the peppers. When I make stuffed peppers, I usually slice them longways and lay them down on top of some seasoned tomato sauce and chicken broth. This seems to amp up the flavor of the pepper.

Pumpkin Pasta

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2012
I have not tried yet but the pumpkin puree part sounds a lot like my recipe for pumpkin soup. I would recommend either making a flour rue first with some butter and adding in pumpkin puree with condensed milk and maybe a little chicken broth to loosen if necesary. I would also balance the pumpkin pie spices with a little dried sage to give it a little savory note. Top with toasted slivered almonds.
