Acorn Squash with Parsley, Sage & Walnut Pesto
A sophisticated alternative to a brown-sugar glaze, pesto flavored with pungent sage makes a delicious topping for winter squash. The pesto can also be swirled into mashed squash or served as an accompaniment to poultry.
Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate the pesto (Step 2) for up to 2 days.
Tip: To toast chopped walnuts: Place in a small dry skillet and cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes.
