- Off heat, finish with lemon juice, parsley, and pepper.
excellent recipe. you can use bacon instead of prosciutto. yummy.
Love it! I do think my butternut squash was a tad green, so next time I think I will cut it in smaller pieces. I also will be lowering the heat on that butter sauce to infuse more sage flavor into it. A def repeat though.
