The flesh of spaghetti squash comes out in long strands, very much resembling the noodles for which it is named. In this recipe, the 'noodles' are tossed with vegetables and feta cheese. You can substitute different vegetables, but be sure to use ones that have contrasting colors.
Moroccan-Style Stuffed Acorn Squash
Moroccan-style stuffed acorn squash brushed with melted butter and brown sugar, then filled with vegetables, garbanzos, raisins, and couscous in a lovely Moroccan broth. You can experiment with different vegetables or add diced chicken. Feel free to be creative with your amounts. I usually freestyle and end up with leftover stuffing mixture, which tastes great on its own the next day. For vegetarians, substitute vegetable broth for the chicken broth.
Butternut Squash Bisque
Great use for all that early fall vegetable! Nice start for a fall day dinner or lunch.
This is a marvelous autumn potluck dinner. Everyone will be very impressed with this thick beef stew made and served in a pumpkin shell! Use a 10- to-12 pound pumpkin; be sure not to overbake!
What is Hubbard Squash?

Grandma's Sweet Hubbard Squash Custard Pie
This hubbard squash custard pie recipe was handed down from my grandma. I have tweaked it to spice it up some! It is a unique addition to any Thanksgiving celebration and holds its own against pumpkin pie any day!
Winter Squash: How To Cook It
Winter squash aren't just beautiful centerpieces, they're also some of the healthiest, most delicious vegetables to grace our dinner tables.
Baked Delicata Squash with Lime Butter
My new favorite squash is Delicata, an heirloom squash happily being rediscovered. Look for them in the winter squash section of your grocery store. They're cream to pale yellow with green stripes, and their flesh is orange, slightly sweet and smooth but not stringy. My sister suggested the lime butter topping (my personal favorite), but a blend of maple syrup and butter is good, too. The squash usually aren't very big, so plan half a squash per person.

Autumn Squash Casserole
This has become a must-have at Thanksgiving. It's so good it tastes like it could be dessert! Even people who don't usually like squash change their mind after trying this. It's a delicious blend of different tastes and textures. I use buttercup squash, but acorn squash can also be used; Jonathan, Rome or other dry apples work best. It can also be made a day ahead of time--just add the cornflake topping and bake the next day.
