  • Summary

    A U-shaped peeler with a horizontal blade (available at most supermarkets) makes peeling the squash easier. Here it’s okay to pulse the parsley in a food processor rather than chop it by hand, but pat it dry with paper towels first.

    Ingredients

    • 1 preserved lemon
    • 1 1/2 pound butternut squash, peeled and seeded, and cut into 1/4-inch dice
    • 3 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 large onion, chopped
    • 1 3/4 cups Israeli couscous or acini di pepe (tiny peppercorn-shaped pasta), about 1 pound
    • 1 (3-inch) cinnamon stick
    • 1 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
    • 1/2 cup pine nuts, toasted
    • 1/2 cup golden raisins
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
