Thanksgiving is tomorrow and in case you needed any last minute recipe ideas, we’ve got you covered…

I am very lucky that my sister Janna is such a great chef and also very adventurous and willing to try fun new recipes that I get to benefit from, this is one of hers!  With butternut squash in season she wanted to try this one out a few weeks ago, and my husband and I were lucky enough to be her guinea pigs!  It is savory and delicious but not heavy, and we imagine it to be perfect as an appetizer or a side dish for your Thanksgiving feast!

Enjoy!!
