Our favorite varieties include pumpkin, spaghetti squash, acorn squash, butternut squash, and delicata. For this week's show, we feature recipes for Taco-Topped Spaghetti Squash Bowls and Pumpkin Turkey Chili ... and we also share our most mega recipe roundup ever! On the blog, we have 40-plus winter squash recipes from some of the top food and nutrition bloggers on the web.
