Thank you, thank you, PA! So happy to see another squash fan. This recipe has all the right stuff (for me)...so easy...and a complete meal with roasted asparagus. Love spaghetti squash too. Spinach fettuccine is another thought. If you enjoy making home made pasta, ravioli filled with squash, nutmeg etc., and a buttery sauce is yummy. Lasagna or squash-stuffed cannolini (sp?) with a white sauce is another idea I'm working on.
