    beffymaroo's Note:

    This is a yummy side featuring whole grains and squash! It has a risotto-like quality, and would also be good with parmesan added. I used Trader Joe's 10-minute farro because that is the easiest to find and most reasonably priced where I live, but you could sub other types of farro, too. Just adjust the simmer time accordingly.
