I have a favorite recipe from Cooks Illustrated which uses a large saute pan or skillet. First cook bacon strips, then add sage leaves to fry in the bacon fat. Take out the sage and bacon and add cubes of butternut squash and shallots. After the squash is browned, add nutmeg and salt and pepper and chicken broth and simmer until the squash is tender. Serve over pasta and crumble the bacon and sage over the top with some parmesan. Absolutely heavenly dish.

I hadn't thought of eating my pineapple sage, I'll have to give that a try.

Did I see butternut squash recipe.

I have lots and lots and are trying tons and tons of recipes.

This is different from anything I have tired. Nutmeg and bacon and sage, hmmmm, . And I have sage too.

I have always had trouble pinching back sage and not harming it, so thanks for that big of infomtion. ANd thanks for yet another recipe.

I think I am drowing in butternut squash and to make it even worse I have two large rows of sweet potatoes coming in this fall too.

We will all be yellow from beta carotene when spring comes around.

If you were a bit closer, I'd happily take some of those butternuts off your hands! LOL I'm looking forward to them at the farmers' market. :-)

critter; I'd give 'em to you free too, and not make you pay $2.00 like I am seeing at Wal Mart.

LOL Don't worry, I get my $2's worth by getting the very biggest ones! At least squash and sweet potatoes are good "keepers" so you don't have to go into a freezing or canning frenzy. :-)
