Braised Meat with Butternut Squash (Stufadin di Zuca Zala) was posted in The Naples Daily News food section, Naples FL, Wednesday, September 16, 1998 (from a Scripps Howard release- author not given) *Note: halved, seeds and fibers removed, peeled, cut into ½- inch cubes and parboiled in salted water for 5 minutes Warm 2 tbsp of the olive oil in a saute pan over low heat. Add the onions, garlic and rosemary, saute until tender and translucent, about 8 minutes.

Remove from heat and set aside. Warm the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in a heavy pot over high heat.

Add the meat and brown well on all sides, sprinkling with a little salt after it has browned. Add the wine and let it bubble up.

Add the sauteed onions, the butternut squash and the broth to cover; bring to a boil.

Cover, reduce the heat to low and simmer gently until the meat is tender and the squash has formed a puree, 1 hour to 1- ¼ hours. Season with salt and pepper before serving.

Makes 4 to 6 servings.

Variation: you can use ¾ pound carrots, peeled and grated, in place of the squash.
