Squash Recipes

Picking out squash at the farmers' market or grocery store can be overwhelming sometimes. There are hundreds of varieties and they all differ in shape, size and color. Making a choice can be a bit easier once you know that squash are divided into two subgroups: tender summer squash and hearty winter squash. Summer squash includes easy-to-chop options like zucchini and pattypan squash. Winter squash, on the other hand, requires a bit more elbow grease to prepare. It usually has a thicker skin—think pumpkins, spaghetti squash and butternut squash—which can be removed with a sharp vegetable peeler or a chef's knife.
