A few steps....

Happy Tuesday to you!   Is your week off to a good start?

Several of my recent posts have been about my time at Lake Junaluska last week-end.  Before I left, I had a cooking project in the kitchen.  There are quite a few steps to it, but it is well worth the effort.  I received my inspiration from Munchomom who included the link to the recipe on her blog awhile ago.  It became our "favorite food" for the holiday season.

Won ton wrappers.

Butternut squash filling.

Moisten edges with water.

Fold over, moisten to hold shape.

Ready to add to boiling water.

Cooking process complete.

Brown butter sage sauce on top.

Parmesan cheese adds the finishing touch!

This is from Giada deLaurentis - Butternut Squash Tortelloni.  It is a bit time-consuming to assemble, but the different parts of it can be put together at different times.  Just stay tuned, and I will post the recipe in the next post!

Thank you for reading.  I appreciate your comments!
