    Gandalf The White's Note:

    Source: "Kitchen Suppers for Family and Friends" by Laura Washburn (c) 2004. Pub: Ryland Peters & Small, NYC & London. As the author points out, the partnering of a sweet squash with the garlicky, basil-based pistou isn't obvious, but it works well. Simple recipe, wonderful flavor. She recommends it with roast lamb or chicken, since pistou can serve as a sauce for the meat as well as the squash. Recipe as written is both kosher (parve) and vegan.

      Actually I was just searching for "pistou" because I wanted the measurements of basil and garlic... But I had my last butternut squash sitting in the pantry and waiting for use, so I thought this would be a nice change to all those casseroles or sweet squash recipes. Indeed it was - such a simple recipe but so aromatic. It got rave reviews, and I'll try it with hokkaido pumpkin, too. Thanks for sharing this unusual recipe!
