Doing my weekend reading, I came across this article talking about a recipe called "Pumpkin stuffed with Everything Good". One ingredient under the "everything" heading is squash.
I really enjoy squash, and don't eat nearly enough of it that I would like. I chalk it up to much like many other non-everyday ingredients, it becomes lost in the fold with my family's routine. We eat a lot of vegetables, and our share of fruits, but squash lately has been relegated to the pureed Gerber that my son Anthony eats. (And say what you want, I do sneak a spoonful or two to demonstrate how it's done, and ensure it's not poisonous.)
One of my all-time favorite squash dishes was the buttnernut squash ravioli in brown butter sauce that I had at the buffet at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. It stood out to me then and it's been etched in my memory ever since.
Squash is great anytime of year, since many are considered seasonal (summer, autumn, winter), and can be part of what makes vegetarian dishes tasty.
The great thing is they're also available year-round at local grocery stores and farmer's markets. Whether it's acorn, pumpkin, spaghetti, or zucchini, I enjoy cooking with and eating different kinds of squash.
What are your favorite recipes or meals with squash? I'm always looking for ideas...
