Pairs Well With


A friend bought me some scallops at the farmer's market yesterday and I woke up this morning realizing I wouldn't have time to cook them unless I made them right away.

Looking around I decided to pair them with the leftover squash for some bulk to the sauce and the fresh sage was looking at me from the backyard.
