Butternut Squash and Pear Puree


Dan and I first tasted this puree when we went to Duo for our anniversary.  We decided immediately that we needed to try to make this at home.  Dan made a few iterations and this was by far our most favorite.  It would be a great addition to any meal since it is fresh with just a hint of sweetness.
