Cook's Tips

If refrigerated chopped butternut squash is not available, use 1 (12-ounce) package frozen chopped butternut squash. Another small pasta (macaroni, orzo or small shells) may be used in place of ditalini.

Did you know PAM leaves up to 99% less residue? Use it to combat hours of cooked-on food by spraying PAM on the inside of your crockpot before use. You'll avoid annoying residue and save time on cleanup.
