  4. This sounds like a great combination of flavors!

  5. I saw something very similar a couple of days ago. Looks delicious and well worth a try!

  6. I made a similar dish last autumn, but with cherry tomatoes instead of pinenuts. I can easily imagine how they'd elevate the dish with all their wonderful flavours.

    (You could always just add some tomato sauce to hubby's portion!)

  7. Oh yeah me like :) Butternut squashes are in season here and I will definitely give this a try.

  8. I love butternut squash. I actually got one today! Perfect timing with this recipe. It looks great!

  11. Might just do that Angela!! Or tell him if he wont eat what I cook then he'll have to get his own dinner!!!

  12. This looks great, although I was struggling to think of the connection with Scotland. Then I thought doh! It is about eating whar you want. I did that during the week. Spaghetti with lot of garlicky pesto and parmesan. Lovely!

  13. That looks and sounds fablicious.

    I agree, Beth, let hubby get his own dinner, he'll soon come round to your way of thinking. :-)

  16. You don't need a sauce when you use amazing ingredients. I would be so happy if I had this for dinner - can I be your neighbor?

  17. Pam - as it happens next door is up for sale!!!
