    • No chili…if you’re looking at the yellow..that is the acorn squash. I was just being creative with ingredients and found that the sweetness of the leeks and the squash (and to an extent the cheese) mixed with the saltiness of the pancetta worked out beautifully. Give it a try and get back to me!
