Thanksgiving leftovers will probably tide you over today. Or even tomorrow. But sooner or later you'll be craving something else. Cheesy Butternut Squash Pasta Sauce from Allrecipes.com caught my eye.

I hope everyone had a great meal yesterday. Loyal readers made the list of things I’m thankful for.

Also, big props for tuning in today while others run each other over on their way to the cheap TVs.

I was done with squash. Really done. I kind of overdid it on the butternut variety back in September and October. I couldn’t face the leftovers of one of the soups I made and really haven’t had the taste for it since.
But this recipe for Cheesy Butternut Squash Pasta Sauce has reeled me back in. It’s vaguely seasonal, but timeless, too. Meatless, but you could definitely toss it with some diced roast turkey if you have any of that lying around.
I have an aging butternut squash sitting on the counter at home. Now that I have this idea, it won’t last the weekend.

Butternut Squash Risotto looks easy enough for a weeknight. From Martha Stewart

Who doesn’t love risotto? Who doesn’t make it because you have to stand there stirring for half an hour?
Come to think of it, that’s probably why it’s so good. By the time you’re done stirring it, you’re starving.
This recipe for Butternut Squash Baked Risotto might put that theory to the test.
The rice does most of the liquid absorption thing while the dish is in the oven.
It could easily serve as a meatless meal for 4, and it’s a delicious use of kale, which — in my estimation — requires accompaniment of salt, fat or carbohydrate to be palatable.
Went ahead and broke this down because I was curious. If you get 4 servings, (which sounds like an entree portion to me), this is what you’re in for
