    WiGal's Note:

    Our family and friends love this low fat side dish. When I have a vegetarian here, I use vegetable broth instead of chicken. This recipe came from Cooking Light magazine.

      A very nice side dish to whatever else you want to make. It would go well with grilled meat or veggies or a roast. It would certainly serve as lunch all by itself since it has so many healthy ingredients built right in.

      It's not that we're vegetarian, because we're not, but when I can (as with a recipe like this) I try to keep it non-meat in every way, so I did make the version with vegetable broth, & it was homemade, at that! Served this when my vegetarian son & DIL were over, & wasn't surprised when they enjoyed it as much as did the 2 of us! Thanks for posting the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

      We liked this dish as a side to a pork tenderloin we smoked in the stovetop smoker. I liked the cheesy flavor. I think I prefer my squash oven roasted or sauteed in a pan with herbs, but this was definitely worth a try. Thanks!
