I am really trying to get my daughter at least one vegetarian meal a week. This is a stretch for me. We have quite a few squashes right now so you will be seeing a few squash recipes over the next few weeks. I made Butternut Squash Chili (click for link to recipe) last week and then acorn squash this week. I also have a spaghetti squash and another butternut squash. This is going to be interesting.
Verdict: This was a divided meal. My daughter and wife really liked it. I tolerated it and ate about 1/4 of one (they were huge!). My son ate two bites and couldn’t do it. I ended up making him a frozen pizza. He was honest and said this is only the second or third meal that I have made over the last 6-7 years that he just couldn’t bring himself to eat. It was a texture and flavor issue for him. I don’t think he cared for the thyme and sage mixture.
I served this with a green side salad to complete the meal.
