Warm Squash & Quinoa Salad

When I see butternut squash at the supermarket, I buy one. It's amazing tossed with earthy quinoa, Italian spices and crunchy pine nuts. And don't get me started on the browned butter! Yum. —Carly Taylor, Libertyville, Illinois

TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 minutes.

YIELD: 6 servings


·                                 2 cups quinoa, rinsed
