Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 Acorn squash; peeled, seeded,
And cubed to yield 1 1/2 cups
8 tablespoons Olive oil; divided
12 Scallions; trimmed at each end
20 larges Spot prawns; peeled
8 ounces Campari
8 ounces Dry white wine
1 cup Chopped tomatoes
1 tablespoon Chopped fresh rosemary leaves

Bring 6 quarts water to boil. Prepare bowl of ice water. Plunge acorn squash cubes in boiling water and cook until al dente, about 7 to 8 minutes. Remove squash and refresh in ice water until cool. Drain and set aside. In a large non-stick saute pan, heat 4 tablespoons of the olive oil until smoking. Saute scallions until limp but still green and remove to warm plate. In a sauce pan, saute spot prawns until golden on one side.

Arrange 3 cooked scallions on each of 4 plates. Divide tomato and squash mixture into center of each plate and arrange prawns around squash mixture like a teepee. Serve immediately. This recipe yields 4 main-course servings.
