Butternut squash is an amazing vegetable. It's difficult to peel and cut in half, but once cooked and broken down, it turns soft and creamy. That's what makes it so ideal for recipes that call for something velvety, and for the recipe that follows.
In this dish, butternut squash is cooked and mashed before being stuffed into shells and baked. Some ricotta cheese ramps up the creaminess and adds a bit of decadence to the dish, while spinach keeps things fresh and lends a pop of color. An amazing vegetable, made even better!
