While perusing the grocery store aisles for something to strike my fancy, in my typical fashion before dinner, I ran across some cubed squash and red peppers. It immediately made me crave the butternut squash ravioli at our local Italian restaurant that I love. I wasn’t about to make homemade ravioli and squash ravioli aren’t available at my grocery store, so I decided to deconstruct the dish. I grabbed a can of Alfredo sauce with a few other essentials and I was on my way.
As the beautiful squash and vegetables were caramelizing in the oven, I kept staring at the canned Alfredo sauce, questioning my initial judgement. I was worried the thick salty sauce would overpower the more delicate flavors of the squash, so I decided to re-work my plan.
