Other ways I like to make squash is into a Harvest Kale Salad with Roasted Winter Squash or Parmesan Roasted Squash. Even Turkey Chili Stuffed Acorn Squash for a full meal.

The farmer’s market has many varieties of squash this time of year. This recipe would also work for carnival squash and butternut squash. To eat, simply mash it all around in the shell and enjoy each bite.

Some might even consider this as a dessert and adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
