This is a 3-course dinner to end the week - or start the weekend... Three easy, one dish, courses. Winter squash, apples and walnuts: Celebrate the season!
Total time: 30 minutes
Butternut squash makes a lovely, creamy soup with no cream and very little fat. I added a bit of tomato paste to this which added another layer of flavor; a bit of tart to the squash's sweet. A bit of Sherry, and a dollop of crème fraiche or sour cream to finish and you have the perfect autumn soup.
Total time: 25 minutes
This is a variation on Scampi, Shrimp in Garlic Butter. The lemon juice and white wine extend the sauce without using quite so much butter and the Prosciutto is a sweet/salty counterpoint to the shrimp, balancing the flavors nicely. Sprinkle with fresh Parmesan or not... You can use frozen, raw shrimp or pre-cooked for this.
Note: the photo was taken before I added the cheese - the shrimp and ham showed up better.....
