I got this recipe from Food Network and thought I'd share it here. It's easy prep and a great way to use up the bounty of squash. The original called for zucchini but I had a yellow crook neck that I used and it turned out great. ENJOY..Plus since it is baked and uses olive oil it is healthier than frying,etc.
