What's For Dinner Wednesday

Once again Wednesday dinner is going to be served to us from someone other than one another so I am leaving you with a stand in, Tuesday nights meal. You see, I don't work on Tuesday so it's much easier for me to plan and cook a meal on that evening rather than on Wednesday night. Splatgirl, can I still play along even though I'm cheating? I would be happy to leave you with a photo of what I'll order tonight but I almost guarantee it's not quite as interesting as what I can make in my kitchen.

Anyhow, last night we had cheese ravioli with butternut squash pasta sauce. It was good but next time I'll make a few changes. I used a carnival squash so the flavor may not have been what was intended, although now that I look it up it's described as a similar variety to butternut. I tasted different flavors in each bite I took. Sometimes sweet and sometimes savory. As recommended in the recipe, the pasta was topped with shredded Parmesan and toasted walnuts. We froze the remainder of the sauce for a quick weeknight meal and I took some for lunch today too. I'll make this recipe again. Where did I get it? The latest issue (October 2006) of Everyday Food.

I think the meal was even worth nearly losing the tip of my index finger from the vegetable peeler! Don't worry, it looks worse than it feels.

OMG! Your dinner looks so tasty but after looking at your injured finger all I can think of is Wendy's Chili!

The pasta looks delicious! I don't know much about squash but I think the acorn has the best flavor, try that next time. How is the finger?

That looks so yummmy! I love that you are posting these photos of what you cook especially since I have been on a cooking baking kick lately! By the way, we made your cold pasta! It was a hit.
