    Barb Gertz's Note:

    This is a very good and comes from George Stella's Low Carb and Loving it. I did change the way to cook the squash as it is much faster and less clean up.

      I loved this recipe. I forgot to add the cream and did not have tomatoes so I sauted onion, garlic and red peppers. It was wonderful and I can't wait to make it again!

      I added shrimp to the cheese sauce and fed to my children 4 and 6. Delish! Thank you for a great recipe.
