This was the star of the dinner! Wonderful recipe...I was concerned as the recipe calls for putting butter on squash but is not listed in the ingredients. Then it also has wine in the ingredients but does not tell you what to do with it. I figured it was to go in to deglaze the pan after baking for the sauce. Made for PAC Spring 2012...Loved it.
