The squash did not cook in the time suggested and it was a real pain to scoop out the squash without demolishing the shell. I ended up scooping all the squash out, mixing with ingredients and cooking in a buttered baking dish. The flavor was good so I will make this again, but will peel and cube the squash before baking it at 400 for 45 minutes.

This recipe was really easy and delicious! I didn't have an onion, so I omitted it, and I am pregnant so instead of adding white wine, I just added water. It was still really good! I will make this again.

Very easy to make, lots of flavour, we enjoyed this. I did play with it a little since I had veggies to use up, I added a small sliced zucchini and some sliced mushrooms, and then I tossed the whole lot with penne and served with parmesan. This made an excellent supper dish and I hope you will forgive me for experimenting a bit! Made for PAC Spring 2012
