I remember when I did not like squash and would avoid eating it. I now love squash and many times find it on sale. I love finding new ways to use the squash I buy. I found this recipe on the web site - All Recipes. Photo is from All Recipes.
I am glad to share this one with you.
My mother made something so similar to this but she used broccoli and everyone in our family loved it.
I think this one will be a keeper! Enjoy.
