Butternut Squash Ragu

Sunday, October 27, 2013

From our skinny table to yours...

Today we are sharing an oldie, but goodie!  We have a true LOVE for our Butternut Ragu and will absolutely be using this as a go-to all season long!  It's delicious, healthy and oh-so easy ;)

The beauty here is that your oven and food processor will do all the work for you.  Simply toss olive oil, butternut squash, jalapeno, red onion, garlic and fresh parsley together in a baking dish and heat until soft.  Follow this up by tossing everything in the food processor along with nutty parmesan cheese and organic reduced sodium chicken stock and blend until smooth!


Side note - we love making extra of basically everything and jarring up our leftovers.  By doing so this eliminates the 'I have nothing to eat, let's order takeout' dilemma and assures that we are always eating homemade clean, organic and GMO free food!  We don't take lightly as to what we are putting into our bodies!

Hope you enjoy this as much as we do!
