Ingredients

  • 2 strips bacon, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 medium butternut squash (1 1/4 lb), peeled, seeded, cubed
  • 2/3 cup chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (15oz) can S&W® Cannellini Beans (drained, rinsed)
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon torn fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

Directions

In large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat 5 minutes or until crisp, stirring frequently. Remove to small bowl with slotted spoon. Drain all but 1 tablespoon of the bacon drippings. Stir in onion and garlic. Cook over medium heat 4 to 5 minutes or until starting to soften, stirring frequently. Add squash. Cook 5 to 7 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring and turning occasionally. Add broth, oregano, salt and pepper. Cover and cook 5 minutes or until squash is tender. Stir in beans and vinegar. Cook until thoroughly heated. Top with fresh basil and olive oil.

Tip: Before peeling, poke squash with a fork in several places and microwave 1 minute. The squash will be much easier to peel.
During the fall months when pumpkins are available, you can substitute cubed pumpkin for the butternut squash.
