Four Delicious Ways to Cook with Fall Squash

Fall squash is one of all-time my favorite ingredients to cook with.

Butternut squash is my favorite fall squash. It is packed with Vitamin A, beta carotene and is a source of fiber. It can be used as a substitute in any recipe that calls for pumpkin. Acorn squash is my husband's favorite fall squash and it is just as delicious, but has a slightly different taste.

How to Roast Butternut Squash

One of our most favorite fall dishes is Cranberry Walnut Acorn Squash Bowls.

Pasta with Fall Squash and Leeks is a hearty dish perfect for a fall evening.

  1. God I love squash! After years of overabundance with our squash and zucchini this year was a bust! Your photos are fantastic.

  2. They all look great! I want to like acorn squash, it can be stringy however. Your cranberry filled acorns look like my next squash recipe. thanks so much.

  3. Love squash! I just made a new version with a ton of veggies in the crock pot this weekend and will use the rest tonight in another new dish. Thanks!

  4. Can't wait to try these recipes! Thanks for sharing them for TMTT.

  5. Ooh I just picked up a butternut squash too! I had no idea what I was going to do with it; I just figured it was time to try it out. Thanks for the inspiration!

  6. These all look good.

    My mother used to fix acorn squash very simply with butter, pepper, and cinnamon. She might have used some salt, too, but we were on a low salt diet. I have never been able to cook them as well as she did, but I love them. I like the acorns you show there filled with cranberries. I heard a recipe for that recently, and I can't remember it!

    Happy Foodie Friday...

  7. I love baking butternut squash either in the oven or the microwave.... put on a lot of margarine, salt and pepper.

  10. YUM I love these great ideas - we have a ton of squash to eat this year so I'm bookmarking you!

  11. These look delicious. I also came across a chili recipe with squash. I have 2 squash sitting on my kitchen countertop.

  12. Great post! I love your ideas. Especially about baking with squash. I always forget about that one. And it's so handy when one's garden is abundant. I like to make soup and there is one Indian stew I make sometimes that calls for pumpkin which is a nice unique meal. Thanks for linking up at Vegetarian Foodie Fridays!
