The Barefoot Contessa recently took to Instagram to share her favorite fall lunch with her two million devoted followers—a gorgeous Butternut Squash & Ricotta Toast recipe from her book, Cooking for Jeffrey. You can find this exact recipe on her site, and it turns out, Ina's favorite fall lunch is super easy to make!

All you have to do is roast and mash some butternut squash, sauteé onions, toast a few hearty slices of bread and serve with a generous portion of ricotta cheese. This just might become our new favorite lunch, too! It's easy to make ahead for eating at the office or serving at a dinner party.

We also suggest trying our festive Fig & Ricotta Toast with honey and toasted almonds, or you could stick to Garten's preference and swap figs for our easy-peasy Roasted Butternut Squash. We think you could serve this delicious, simple meal for a cozy and comforting breakfast.
