I would have never thought to use squash this way! It has great flavor and is a hearty meal. I found it on BH&G website.

This is a great recipe. I made my own italian sausage with lean ground pork, fennel seeds and red pepper flakes (see in my reviews "italian sausages"). I used a jar of parmesan and romano sauce. The flavors of this dish is so good. Thanks Rollin in the Dough :) Made for Healthy tag game
