Served in its shell, this simple preparation of spaghetti squash makes a dramatic presentation as part of an everyday winter meal. It’s festive enough to serve as a holiday side dish at the Thanksgiving or Christmas table as well. For more servings, simply double the recipe. Photos by Evan Atlas.
Delicata squash is delicious any way you slice it. Delicata, acorn, and butternut are three of my favorite varieties of squash. For delicata, wash it, cut it in half from top to bottom, then scoop out the seeds from each half with a spoon and slice into half-inch pieces. This squash is delicious simply steamed in a little water. Contributed by Meg Wolff, from A Life in Balance,* ©2010, Down East Books.
Brown rice and pecans are a tasty team in this thyme-scented stuffed squash recipe. The savory nut, bread, and rice stuffing, contrasted with the subtle sweetness of the acorn squash, makes a perfect holiday main or side dish for Thanksgiving or Christmas, though you can enjoy it as a weekend meal any time throughout the fall and winter.
