    JanuaryBride's Note:

    This is supposedly the ultimate waistline-slimming meal due to the combo of the squash and pine nuts. What's more? It supplies nearly four servings of veggies. Recipe from Prevention magazine 10/2008. Feel free to make this recipe vegan by using a vegan cheese or leaving off the cheese altogether!

      This was great! I did add some onions, salsa, and cilantro, which I think made it extra tasty. The kids weren't thrilled about it but they ate it anyway. I will definitely make this again for myself.

      Delicious! This was a welcome change of pace. I would have never dreamt of putting squash, black beans, and pine nuts together but it was a heavenly combination. I made as directed except that I topped it with No-Cheese Cheeze Sauce/Dip instead of Monterey Jack to make it vegan. Made for April 2009 Vegetarian Swap. Update July 2009: I made this again using 1 acorn squash and 1 large zucchini. I LOVED it with the zucchini. Also, this time I used chunky salsa in place of the tomatoes and veganrella brand vegan cheese. Definitely a versatile "keeper" of a recipe.
