I put cheese in my spaghetti squash and a bit of butter. It is great.

I tried spaghetti squash last night. I put some low fat alfredo sauce on it and my DH raved. I'm going to use a pumpkin this weekend and some long yellowish/white squash. Not sure how, but we'll give them a shot.

Thanks CFMoss. Maybe I'll practice my turkey stuffing on it before Thanksgiving.

Squash soup. I just made a chicken broth with some onions, carrots, salt,pepper,cinammon, curry and pureed some squash and apples together and mixed it in. I let it sit for a day and it was really good.

When I stuff them it's more like a stuffed pepper - with a blob of stuffing of choice in the divet in the middle. I'm more likely to fill it with something similar to what would go in a turkey than I would something I would put in a pepper (i.e., I'm more likely to use a bread cube base than a rice base, but anything that tastes good works) I usually try to make sure it has more protein in the stuffing simply because I tend to use a stuffed squash as a main course as opposed to a side.

I love butternut squash and bought one last week. I hope to make it this week-end. It is getting cold here and tomorrow is my last week for the farmer market until spring. Anyone has a good squash soup recipe let me know.

Stuff it? Like cabbage leaves or a bell pepper?

acorn squash is definitely stuffable and it even presents more nicely than butternut because of its shape. I usually whack it in half and bake halves down and then put the filling in and bake some more. sounds good....maybe i should do that next week:)

The soup was good the longer it sat.

Here's a new one. I had a salad today in the cafeteria and they used sweet potatoes for croutons. They just cubed them after baking. Not crisp like I had imagined but still very creative and good.

Another new one for me.

I've tried the acorn squash once or twice. One of my co-workers would bring me some every fall. He has since retired and I haven't had any for the last two or three years. My husband loved them, better than the butternut squash.

SMCardle, can you stuff acorn squash like butternut squash? I'm trying to use up what I have. Does anyone know, besides they look different, what the difference in taste is between the two. I have no idea.

I did mush up one of my acorn squashes along with a couple of apples and mixed it with a left over chicken soup I made. I'll let you know tomorrow how it is. I cut back on the salt and I'm hoping the other flavors pick it up after sitting for a day in the fridge.

Happy Fall! emoticon emoticon

My husband is the pumpkin pie expert. He loves making them from scratch. I like to make pumpkin bread/muffins.

I found a receipe completely on accident that is a susage and fall harvest stew that is made in a slow cooker. It used susage, zucchini, acron squash, potatoes, carrots, onions, green beans, peas, and green peppers. You use beef broth as the base and flavor it with red wine, rosemary, and pepper. Cook it for 10 hours and then add some water and flout to thicken it. I will let you know how it tastes when I get home.

I actually did a blog the other day about different pumpkin recipes and in them you can substitute almost any kind of squash. Here is the link:

I like the spaghetti squash used as spaghetti. It sounds weird but it tasted good with the spaghetti sauce on it. Maybe it covered up that earthy taste. :)

I'm on the look out for squash recipes to use the goards with. am thinking a soup ladled in to the shells. Something special for the holidays that is also good for me.

Will check back for more ideas!

I want to correct myself on my earlier post. I forgot to say "I got this recipe out of oct 5th of First for Women" magazine. Like I said I did like the smoothie.

We LOVE the pumpkin muffins, using the pumpkin puree.

Just mix a box of spice cake mix, 15 oz can of the pumpkin puree (not pie filling). Some recipes call for 1 cup of water, some say just mix the puree with the cake mix. Bake at 350 for about 20-30 mins...depending on the cake mix you use really and how full you fill the cupcake wells. We have used different cake mixes and spices. The pumpkin muffin recipe is good with a tiny bit of brown sugar, pumpkin spice and coconut mixed together and sprinkled on top too. So many things you can do with them depending on your taste buds.

I LOVE zucchini and yellow squash. We boil it, bake it, roast it with other veggies, grill it, stir fry it... I've tried many times to like the acorn, spaghetti and butternut squash but my taste buds just will not cooperate with me in liking those three. LOL! They taste a bit too earthy or something to me ???

Good luck finding something you like. The recipes and ideas listed sure sound delicious!

I like to bake mine and stuff them with raisins mixed in with some stuffing or wild rice. I have experimented with sausage stuffing, cranberry stuffing, you can do just about anything.

I did butternut squash with a bit of brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg and 2 tablespoons of butter. Bake it for 50 minutes and it was wonderful.

Since we are now in fall my local grocer is now carrying lots of fall produce. Anyone have any good receipes for pumpkin puree or any kind of squash?
