Butternut Squash con gorgonzola

Hola hola!!

Counting down to Thanksgiving… I am so excited! I love this holiday. In Spain we do not have Thanksgiving, I guess this makes this holiday even more special for me.

Today I will pick up my turkey from the farm. I can’t wait to get it in the oven! More time in the kitchen is always a good thing.

In the fall wherever you go, to the farmers market, grocery store, your local stand, you’ll find a lot of butternut squash (and lots of other squash.) In Spain, we don’t eat a lot of squash except for zucchini. No pumpkins, no acorn squash, spaghetti squash. It’s definitely more of an American thing.

Anyway, I love Butternut Squash and right now is the season for it, so I though that you’d all like this simple tapa, perfect for the Thanksgiving and fall season.


  • 1 butternut squash peeled and thinly sliced (round – 1/4 of an inch)
  • 1 grated onion
  • gorgonzola (any blue cheese)
  • salt and pepper
  • 0live oil

Cook the onion in a non-stick pan. Drizzle on some olive oil and cook the onion on medium-low heat until it is brown.

When the onion is almost cooked, drizzle on some olive oil in a large pan on medium heat. Add the butternut squash slices and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Once the squash is getting brown and soft, remove from the heat.


Add approximately 1 to 2 teaspoons of onion on top of each slice. Then add some gorgonzola.


Broil it for about  a minute or until the gorgonzola melts.


Ready to serve! Bon profit and Happy Thanksgiving!

Hola y Bienvenido/a! Hello and Welcome! My name is Ivette and I am a dual citizen! Originally, I from Catalonia, Spain but in 2014 I moved to the United States and I currently live in Maryland with my husband Richard (number 1 taster, thank you!), my baby girl Beulah my rescue dig Vicky and my two (big!) cutie cats Pintxo & Pastifa. Full house! I love Spanish food. In Spain there is always something to celebrate, gathering with friends and family… We have THREE dishes at every meal! Yes, 3! You will have a first full dish like pasta and for the second dish you will have fish/meat and then dessert, and after dessert coffee…. When I am in Spain and get together with my family (there are 31 of us!), we can start lunch at 2:30pm and finish it at 7pm… I have always loved cooking. My grandmother it is a great, great cook and I think my love of cooking is because of her. When I was in college, my favorite breaks, were getting into the kitchen and cooking or baking something. I was able to escape the normal daily routine of law school. In this blog, I would like to share some Spanish recipes as well as other delicious recipes.
