    I would try the sauce if I liked tomatoes, lol! I’m having butternut squash with my dinner tonight too. It’s in the oven and I really want to eat it right now!

    How you have managed to have those reeses in your fridge without eating them all since Easter, I have no idea. You should package that willpower and sell it 🙂

    I don’t know. The idea of tomato sauce and nut butter does not appeal to me at all!

    That is such a brilliant idea!!! I think I might just have to try it! 🙂

    I couldn’t agree with you more. I find the best inpsiration behind some of the best recipes in the world through my fellow bloggers. We all seem to be on the same foodie level, it’s great!

    I was just thinking of what I can do with a rather large BN squash I have. Thanks for the ideas! 🙂

    I adore squashes too! I’m so glad they’re back!

    Kudos to you and your fearless attitude towards food! I may have to give this a try, even though I’m a bit scared of the combination.

    I would have never thought to put nut butter in my tomato sauce! I love peanut sauce on Thai food, etc, so I’ll have to try the almond/tomato combination!

    Hahaha I can’t help but laugh at this post. I used to read your blog and get inspired by your creative combinations. But now that I am pregnant, just looking at your photos is making me nauseous! =/
    It’s so strange!

    Oooh, I LOVE almond butter on butternut squash, so the idea of adding some marinara to the combo doesn’t scare me THAT much.

    Bahaha, I just read Steph’s comment. Perhaps marinutta is not for everyone 😛

    That is so interesting! I can’t wait to test it out next time I grab a jar of pasta sauce! I’m so excited for cheap squashes – spaghetti, butternut – yum!!!

    I have some almond butter in my pantry right now and, I think i’m going to try this finally. It’s got to help with the satisfaction factor!

    i haven’t tried the marinutta, but it’s on my list, too 🙂

    and winter squash is the highlight of the cold months here!

    OK! I was planning on making eggplant parm tomorrow, but now I know I’m making roasted eggplant with marinutta suace! Thanks for the idea 😉 Heather rocks !!

    I would make that but I am not a big almond butter fan. I LOVE PB though. Do you think that would work?

    That sauce sounds so interesting! I guess a little almond butter can’t hurt anything, right? 🙂

    I think I may try this sauce on a dish I make later this week!!

    That is the most interesting sauce idea ever?! I suppose the sweetness of the tomatoes compliments the saltiness of the almond butter and I am thinking this could have some great potential! Great post 🙂

    Your dinner looks awesome! I’ll have to try that. My boyfriend would probably hate it though. lol

    I love, love, love butternut squash. I haven’t tasted the others.. which one is your favorite?

    At first I thought almond butter + marinara would be weird… but I keep thinking about it, and it would be a very interesting combination! I’ll have to give it a try

    Very interesting sauce- I have half a jar of pasta sauce in the fridge that I have been meaning to use up.

    i love how you always try new different recipes you have never tried before. and i like how you use almond butter for a lot of things!
    the pumpkin biscuit looks delish and i love how you are eating easter candy! haha.

    I think I’ll take that challenge, I’m putting it on my to-make list!

    I love how brave you are with new combos. I need to start branching out more often.

    oooooh girl, I am sooooooo scurrrred and confused! LOL! I actually just bought the same Newman’s Own Marinara at the BOGO sale at Publix, but I would have NEVER thought to mix it with almond butter ( imagine my nose all scrunched up in that eeeww face right now) ! I am just not sure I am brave enough!!

    Lol I buy those eggs the day after Easter and hide them in the freezer! However, Mallard always finds them and devours them before I can savor them! Luckily Reese’s makes hearts, pumpkins (already out!) , and trees!

    Yay for fall squash! I love it too! What’s your favorite kind? Mine depends on the day, but I have been really into acorn squash lately, as evidenced my recent blog posts.
    I believe I have all three of those EXACT items in my fridge right now–TJ’s raw AB, Newman’s pasta sauce, and Bob’s Red Mill flax. Great minds think alike;)

    Almond butter does go with everything. I ain’t scurred, I’ll try that marinutta goodness. Watch me. 😉

    In other AB news, it is delicious with blue corn chips. Just dunk ’em straight in the jar.

    I like to call it F’n Nuts sauce. I’ve tried it. Damn good. I need to roast some veggies. If you’ve done it already, its not too soon!!!

    Spaghetti squash is my favorite fall/winter veggie! Can’t wait to track it down here! 🙂

    I love mixing nut butters with marinara! I always make a peanut sauce by doing that – SO good! And gives marinara a kick – with something different 🙂

    I was just thinking about tomato/marinara sauce! Is Newman’s Own your favorite brand? I’m looking for one that’s low sodium, little to no added sugar, low cal, etc. Any recs?

    I would never think to put marinara and almond butter together but it looks really good topped on your roated veggies. Looks like an enjoyable dinner!

    OMG, that combination is OUT THERE! I swear, I love this blog and think about your food combos allll the time. I love it, b/c these are things I would NEVER eat (I am beyond picky). 🙂 Keep it coming!

    Almond butter goes with anything. Agreed. 🙂

    CD will be so happy to hear that you loved the marinutta as it was totally his creation. Good stuff, huh?

    I too am so excited about Fall veggies. I’ve been eating my weight in Brussels lately, and I’m going squash shopping today. I also need to pick up some pumpkin – your biscuit looks so good!
