I love butternut squash and I love Israeli couscous....so I had make a dish to put them together.
1 small butternut squash
1.5 cups of israeli couscous (also called pearled couscous)
1 tbsp of dried basil
1/4 tsp of cinnamon
1/4 tsp of ground ginger
1/4 tsp of salt
pinch of nutmeg
3 cups of broth or water
2-3 handfuls of spinach
1) Cut squash in half length wise, place in an oven safe dish skin side down. Bake @ 350 for about an hour.
2) While the squash is baking place couscous, spices and broth in a pot and cook until the couscous is al dente.
3) When the squash is done, carefully remove it from the oven and cut cross section into the meaty side. Try to avoid cutting the skin. Spoon the cubes and toss into the pot with couscous. Add the spinach. Cook for a few more minutes until the spinach is wilted and everything is well mixed.
