Winter squash and tomatoes are a winning combination. I've combined this with white navy beans and mozzarella cheese to make a complete and inexpensive meal to make ahead in a 2 quart crockpot. Turn on in the morning and by the time you're back from work, voila! There's dinner. Thiscan be assembled the day before and stored in the refrigerator overnight.Please note tip for preparing squash.
