My mother-in-law gave us a yellow squash from her garden and we weren’t sure what to do with it. I found this pasta recipe, and had to try it. This pasta is so delicious!! We bought more squash just so that we could make it again. The squash with the butter and parmesan sauce is fantastic!! Even my son loved it. This is a great and delicious way to make sure you eat your vegetables. This is so delicious and easy to make, I hope you love it as much as we do!!
