In my opinion, squash is one of the best kinds of produce fall and winter have to offer. I love that it can be incorporated into a variety of dishes. There are so many types – butternut, acorn, delicata, spaghetti, etc. – making it easy to change things up and not get bored.
Whether you’re just roasting squash up for a side dish or having it be the main feature, there are loads of ways to enjoy it.
In this round up of squash recipes you’ll find everything from seasonal flavors to Italian-inspired, Mexican, Moroccan, Thanksgiving side dishes and more.
An extra tip when it comes to preparing squash: Unless you have extremely sharp and high-quality knives, I find it’s best to soften the squash in a preheating oven for about 5-8 minutes. This makes it much easier to cut into and you won’t risk chopping a finger or two off.
