Roasted Butternut Squash, Quinoa, and Arugula

It’s meals like this that become comfort food for me. A slightly warm arugula salad with a mix of flavors that feels these like salad and more like a hearty meal. The feta softens and the pecans add a bit of crunch (without adding the traditional crouton). This is my perfect salad.
