    This was a decent vegetable dish. I will try peeling and baking with garlic the next time. - 8/12/09

    I boiled the squash for 5 minutes covered, peeled with a veggie peeler, cubed, tossed with olive oil, salt, pepper, and 2 cloves minced garlic. Baked for 20 min at 400F, tossed with the spinach and cheese, and baked 10 more minutes. Awesome! Nutty and earthy! - 10/26/08

    Sounds delicious. Tonight I am going to try scooping out the flesh after baking, mashing with the spinach and cheese and returning to the skins until browned. I hope it will work... maybe with some couscous.

    Well this was edible... I had to use acorn squash instead of butternut because our grocery store didn't have butternut squash, so that might have affected it. Maybe we just aren't squash fans... - 11/6/07

    This was wonderful. I ended up eating both halves and was too full to eat dinner... - 11/5/07
