Insanely freaking good. I at an entire squash by myself yesterday, and now I'm searching for more marshmallows so I can make more today!

I'm cooking this right now for the second time. LOVE IT! I could eat it everyday, and I'm not big on veggies.

I have never been a big fan of squash.....until now! My husband loves it, and asked me to make some. So I ran across this recipe, and thought I would give it a try. It is AMAZING!!! I love it, and actually crave it! Husband said it is the best he has ever had. It is easy, and delicious. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
