Squash, anyone?

With this pregnancy, I'm addicted to squash of all things. But despite its apparent simplicity, I have no idea how to make it.

Anyone have any nice and easy squash recipes/preparation tips? I'm talking all kinds of squash. And while you're at it, I'll take any other veggie side dish recipes.

you can use spaghetti squash, just like you would spaghetti noodles. I'll try to find how you cook it. I know that you just cut it in half, spoon out the seeds and bake it in the oven. But I don't know what temp. or how long.

Zucchini or yellow squash is SO good sliced and saute'd in a pan with a little butter or oil and onions. Sprinkle a little salt and pepper and you're done. I made some for a few of my friends last summer and they kept telling me how great it was.

My dad makes the best squash with the big ones. He slices them into four pieces and puts them on a cookie sheet after poking holes into them with a fork and then bakes until the squash is soft (about 30-40 minutes depending on the squash). I don't remember if last time it took longer because I didn't put tin foil on top though. I think you need it. A little butter, salt, pepper; and delicious!

Acorn squash is simple. Layer a cookie sheet with tin foil, cut the squash in half and remove the seeds. Cut a slice of butter, place it on the tin foil with the squash over it. Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes depending on how soft you want it. Enjoy!
