I love winter squash & pumpkin and am always open to new recipes using them, especially savory dishes. It always surprises me that such a tasty vegetable is so good for me! Found this bit of deliciousness in The Washington Post who attributed the source as "Marcella Says . . . Italian Cooking Wisdom From the Legendary Teacher's Master Classes, With 120 of Her Irresistible New Recipes" (HarperCollins, 2004). The article suggests that this tortino can be served while it is still warm, or several hours later at room temperature. It is wonderful to have a dish like this that can be made ahead. Serve as a side on a full dinner or as a lovely light lunch with sauteed greens or a winter salad with bitter greens, shredded beets & pear. Think I will have to prowl this one on Amazon.
