This is truly vulture gourmet, scavenged together last night in service to a huge appetite with little means to satisfy it. It sounds a bit odd, but the sweet/spicy squash is absolutely perfect with saltiness of the ham, backed up by subtly nutty emmenthale cheese and romano cheese. This serves one for dinner, two if accompanied by lots of bread and salad.
- 1 butternut squash
- ½ cup diced smoked ham
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- ¼ teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg
- ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
- sea salt
- freshly ground pepper
- ¼ pound dried bowtie pasta
- 1 ounce grated emmental cheese
- 1 tablespoon grated romano cheese
- ½ tablespoon butter

If I had some fresh Italian parsley, I might add that for some color.
