Foiled Again

Still in Chicago. Wow it's hot, hazy and humid. But I'm stuck inside all day anyway. The conference goes through tomorrow afternoon and there isn't much free time. I am still debating whether I'll attend the reception/dinner tonight or venture out on my own.

Last night I went to the restaurant that I have been thinking about since I found out I was coming to Chicago. Well really since I ate there for Holly's wedding reception in Nov. 2003. It was only a 2 1/2 block walk from the hotel, perfect location. I had a yummy scallop galette appetizer and that's when the waiter brought the bad news. They were out of the the butternut and acorn squash ravioli with sweet walnut butter. Wah. I was so disappointed that I had a hard time picking something else off of the menu. The asparagus ravioli I ended up with was sadly not enough to fill the void. Wah.

Does anyone out there have a really excellent recipe for squash ravioli? I am willing to make my own. Then I can have it any time I want.
