"Tried and true, unpretentious squash recipe that is in my opinion the epitome of a successful recipe. It is very simple to make and goes well with almost anything, especially good with those cold weather meals, Holiday worthy, or even as a side to grilled meats. Many times, I've made it as a main lunch meal."

This was perfect! Simple and delicious. I enjoyed this with a baked chicken dish that cooked at the same temperature. Surprisingly, my son, who hates squash, thought this was wonderful!!
