I tried this recipe because 1)it came from Gourmet, (and I had always found that they had good, sound recipes) and 2) for the fact it had all wonderful ingredients that we like..and 3) because we just discovered butternut squash and wanted to try other recipes. I am afraid to report that this recipe was a bit of a disappoiontment for us. It wasted ingredients, like the chicken broth: there was no need for 3-1/2 cups of chicken broth needed to cook the orzo...and after straining the broth, I'm glad I kept some because the sauce got a little dry. I made up Pasta With Butternut Squash and Sage (Weight Watchers' Friendly) last week that my DH and I went totally ga-ga over last week....and have since passed it around 5 times. Sorry, but I think I will keep to my original recipe!
