This veg-packed dish is the perfect autumnal treat – a delicious way to get three of your five-a-day. Butternut squash cubes speed up the prep time (whew!). You'll marinate the pork loin steaks in rosemary and thyme for extra flavour, then serve with a pesto orzo brimming with tender roasted vegetables.
