Shrimp Stuffed Delicata Squash

Rated as 4.6 out of 5 Stars

"Delicata squash is a small oblong squash that has pale yellow skin with dark green stripes. It's sweet and smooth enough to eat plain, but the flavor really pops with this medley of shrimp and veggies. This recipe was a clean-out-my-freezer concoction that turned out to be tasty. For a light colorful meal, serve with a salad of mixed baby greens, cucumber, and toasted pine nuts."

This was fantastic! I did a couple of changes- baked the squash in the oven because I had it on for something else. Also I didn't have shrimp so I left it off. I will definitely make this again...
