I found this information in this month's Shape magazine:

"You can bake butternut (squash) like sweet potatoes, hoil and mash them like Idaho spuds, or make them into 'boats' for holding other dishes, like stuffing, mixed vegetables, ground beef and turkey. (Cut in half lengthwise, remove seeds and bake at 375 F for 40 minutes).

There were a couple recipes in the magazine too. One for Butternut Soup with Parmesan and Sage and Chucnk Squash and Potato Puree With Buttermilk and Chives. Let me know if you want me to post either or both of these recipes.

Yellow Squash (some ppl refer to it as Yellow Zucchini)

*2-3 Yellow Squash
*1 Med Onion -- chopped
*2 Garlic Cloves -- crushed
*15 oz Can on Hunt's Tomato Sauce
*Seasonings that you like (I use crushed Red Pepper flakes, oregano, & pepper)
*Oil for Saute' (I use miser spray)
*OPTIONAL - Couple TBL of grated Parmesan Cheese

In large non-stick skillet (or electric frying pan), saute' chopped onion in small amount of oil. Add garlic (careful it doesn't burn!) heat through. Add tomato sauce, and seasonings. Mix together. Add sliced squash. Put lid on and simmer for 25-30 mins or until done. Stir once & a while. Sprinkle with parm cheese before serving.

My brother gave this recipe to me so I hope I'm not taking it from some type of source. I have this about 1x a week. It is wonderful and tastes even better the next day. I don't know how many points. But I don't think much. Depends on how much cheese & oil you use.
