I don’t know that there is any vegetable that calls to a wider audience than winter squash. When you think pumpkin, butternut or acorn squash, you think comfort food, fall colors and family gatherings. In our local market we have been seeing winter squash creep in greater and great numbers. This coming weekend our nearest pumpkin farm will open its doors on the weekends welcoming families to come and pick their own pumpkins. You will certainly be seeing us there in the near future!
Since it is now October (how did that happen?) I want to welcome back Pumpkin Tuesday. I started this series the first year I started this blog. But then it faded away with the arrival of two babies. I now have more time on my hands and want to bring it back. So every Tuesday this month I will feature a pumpkin recipe. If you would like to see all the pumpkin recipes I already have click here. I think I will feature more than just pumpkin though as butternut squash, acorn squash, kabocha, and many more are so delicious and can be interchanged with pumpkin.
For this Tuesday I leave you with my recipe for Ravioli alla Zucca con Burro e Salvia, just in case you have a lot of extra time on your hands and want to taste heaven on a plate.
