Butternut & Barley Pilaf
Winter squash contributes a rich, full flavor to a simple barley pilaf. Gremolata, an Italian mixture of parsley, lemon zest and garlic, gives the dish a lively finish. The pilaf is an excellent accompaniment to chicken and pork, but would stand on its own with the addition of Parmesan.
Tip: To save time, use conveniently peeled and cubed butternut squash, available in many supermarkets in the fall and winter.
