My husband would take me to lunch because he loved the squash at this certain resturant. One day he bribred our waitress with a big tip if she would get us the recipe.She did! Since I started making them at home, I didn't get taken out for lunch so often. My whole family loves these and insist they be on table at Thanksgiving!
