Acorn squash is one of those wonderful produce items that is so simple to prepare, and so tasty to eat. Paired with another of fall's gems, the apple, this dish is quick, easy, and good for the whole self.
"There is a Tuscan saying: Non si tira niente - nothing gets thrown away - that is particularly appropriate vis-a-vis this soup. Carrot tops are almost always discarded. But why? They have the same sweet-earthy taste but with a hint of green that makes them perfect for soups or vegetable sautes. Try the following recipe and let it spur your creativity as to how else to use the delicate frilly leaves." -chef2chef
