Appetites, Ingredients Change with the Seasons

Appetites, Ingredients Change with the Seasons

(Family Features) Just as our wardrobe adjusts to the cooler weather, so, too, do our appetites as we enjoy warm, comforting dishes to stave off the chill in the air.

Butternut Squash & Linguine is one of those perfect transition dishes that showcase the best of the season’s offerings. Winter squash of all descriptions are showing up at farmers markets and in grocery store produce aisles now. Butternut squash is one of the most readily recognizable choices, with its distinctive pear shape. Inside is a flavorful, nutrient-rich, yellow-orange flesh that has a subtle sweetness when cooked.

To prepare this recipe, pieces of the squash are simmered with wine and garlic until tender, then a sprinkling of sage is stirred in. A quick toss with Dreamfields linguine and crumbled goat cheese or blue cheese results in a mouthwatering m àlange of flavors. For an extra special finish sprinkle with crisp-cooked prosciutto and chopped walnuts. Either way, it makes a delicious main dish, or a side for poultry or pork.

Just as you shop for the best produce, think about the pasta you purchase, too. Dreamfields pasta is made with durum wheat semolina just like traditional pasta but with 5 grams of fiber (about the same as whole wheat pasta) and 7 grams of protein per serving. It also produces a lower blood sugar response when compared with traditional pasta, making it a healthful choice for the entire family.
