Fall is the best time to try out some new recipes and squash is one of our favorite winter ingredients to cook with!
20 Delicious Squash Recipes the Whole Family Will LoveWe love squash. If you have never tried it you need to! It is such an easy vegetable to cook and my whole family loves it! Squash can store well throughout the winter and is full of vitamins and fiber! The first time I ever tried squash was when my first born was a baby and I started making his baby food. Butternut squash was such a hit! As my family grew I got braver with trying new things. Our favorites are the sweet butternut squash, nutty tasting acorn squash and the “can’t believe it’s not real pasta noodles” spaghetti squash!

Here are 20 delicious squash recipes that everyone will love:

1. Copycat Panera Bread’s Autumn Squash Soup by Hungry Healthy GirlHave you tried this soup yet? It tastes like a dessert in a bowl! So sweet and savory!
Autumn Squash Soup- A tasty soup with lovely Fall flavors!

2. Butternut Squash Fries from Food.com – I bet these are very yummy, you may need some help chopping all that hard squash up though!

 3. Quinoa Stuffed Roasted Acorn Squash from Our Small Hours – I love quinoa, this is another simple and really yummy vegetarian meal!

4. Apple Stuffed Acorn Squash from Taste at HomeI love savory acorn squash because of it’s nutty flavor, but it also makes for a fabulous sweet side dish as well. This goes well with a pork roast or pork chops!

5. Roasted Vegetable Stew by Creative Southern Home – squash goes great in a nice, winter stew!

6. Marshmallow Pecan Acorn Squash – from Taste of Home – wouldn’t this be a different substitute to candied yams?

My favorite squash has got to be spaghetti squash! I love how versastile it is and how you can go low carb and use it in place of pasta:

14. Twice Baked Spaghetti Squash Mac and Cheese by B.Britnell  – what a great idea! YUMMY!

15. Pepperoni Pizza Spaghetti Squash Bake by Dashing Dishthis would be a great one for kids!

17. Spaghetti Squash Lasagna from Skinny Taste – This is a fabulous classic recipe, just replace the noodles for squash!

For the last 3, here are 3 of my personal favorite ways to prepare squash. I made these recipes up. when I cook I really don’t use many recipes I just do my own thing most of the time, and it’s usually quick and simple:

18. Simple and Sweet Smashed Butternut Squash:
Slice squash in half, scoop out the middle, and add a few big pats of butter to the middle. Set in a big glass dish and bake at 350 for about an hour. Scrape into a bowl and add more butter, brown sugar and cinnamon to taste. I like to use a potato masher for this so it is soft like mashed potatoes. This is a family favorite and extremely easy to make!

19. Savory Acorn Squash:
Slice squash in half, scoop out the middle and add a few pats of butter to the middle. Season with garlic powder and your favorite seasoning salt and italian seasoning. Set in a big glass dish and bake at 350 for about an hour. I like to cook it until it is nice and golden brown on the top. You can then serve it in halves and let everyone have their own, or scrape it into a dish.

20. Healthy “Buttered Parmesan Noodles” (aka Spaghetti Squash): 
Cook the Spaghetti Squash just like the other above recipes, put lots of butter in the middle and some garlic seasoning salt and parmesan cheese. Once it is nice and bubbly scrape the noodles into a bowl and add some more butter and freshly grated parmesan cheese on top!
