      This is delicious! Finally, a recipe for squash that DH and I agree is a keeper! I love the stuff, he doesn't so much. I followed the recipe to a "T"; the only difference being that I used turkey bacon b/c I don't eat pork. I especially loved the subtle warmth from the crushed red pepper. Next time I might be tempted to add lentils or perhaps some walnuts, but just for fun. The recipe is definitely not lacking. Thanks so much for posting!
