Our foodie friends came over for dinner last week and brought us a butternut squash from their garden. Your probably thinking, butternut squash, that is nothing spectacular, but this squash was huge.
The squash actually came from an area near their compost bed, probably from some discarded seeds. And it has more “friends” too. They had a whole bucket full of squash, all very large in their garage. So last Sunday we had my hubby’s mother over for dinner and I decided to make some Butternut Squash Soup. With the leftover squash I gave a big chuck of the squash to my sister and saved another piece to make Roasted Squash for dinner tonight. And guess what, we got another squash from them last night – about 15 pounds worth….
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 medium onion, chopped
6 cups chicken stock
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Marscapone (for topping)
