My daughter surprised me with this simple, yet tasty squash. I was out weeding and when I came in, she served me the plate in the photo. Was almost too easy of a recipe to post, but seeing she took the initiative to cook something on her own, I decided to post it. It really was yummy! I was looking for more...LOL! I might make a cook out of her after all. :)

Enjoy!
