I believe it’s officially fall when all my favorite fall/ winter squash go on sale at Publix.
As soon as I saw 79 cents a pound I couldn’t resist picking up one of each! I came home with Acorn Squash, Butternut Squash and Spaghetti Squash. Now all I need is come cooler weather to truly enjoy these.
Of course I do live in Florida and who can stand to wait for the cooler weather to make an appearance any time soon? Not me. The butternut squash was already on the menu for dinner tonight.
Yum! Butternut Squash is gooooood.
I’ve seen Heather and her hubby, CD, gobble up the marinara, nut butter and flax seed combo by the gallon on her blog. Not being one to shy away from fun combinations, I finally got the guts to recreate it tonight.
I combined about 1/2 cup of marinara sauce with a spoonful of flax seed, a spoonful of almond butter and the last of my soy sausage . I then placed the marinutta in the microwave for 1 minute.
After licking the mixing spoon, I could already tell this was a winner.
While I was experimenting with the marinutta sauce 1/2 the Butternut Squash, Brussel Sprouts, Baby Portobellos, and 1/2 an Onion was roasting in the oven.
The finish product with a little Feta Cheese sprinkled on top.
Can’t forget the addition of the Pumpkin Biscuit.
This was great!!
The marinutta sauce was a tad on the sweet side and really enhanced the flavors of the roasted veggies. This has only confirmed what I already knew to be true – Almond Butter goes with anything!!
For dessert I retrieved a Reeses Egg from my chocolate stash.
And this afternoon I snacked on some Dried Mango.
Now, please take my word, don’t be afraid to try interesting recipes. If a person says its good in a blog then more then likely it will be! I challenge you to make your own marinutta sauce at home. Don’t be scurrrred.
