Squash has come to represent the fall season more than any other vegetable. It comes in many shapes and sizes, its flesh ranges in color from pale yellow to deep orange and its flavor is sweet and mellow. Squash makes a great addition to many recipes such as a topping for breads, incorporated into side dishes and salads or as a main dish.

Butternut squash, shaped like a bell, is one of the most popular varieties. But there are other varieties that deserve just as much attention. In our gallery, you'll find recipes for acorn squash, Delicata squash, buttercup squash, Kabocha squash and spaghetti squash, which is one of the most interesting kinds as you'll soon see.
