Roasted squash with ricotta and honey

This was great!  My dad likes squash and I have never cooked it, so I was keeping my eyes peeled for recipes with squash.  And this looked delicious and easy.

Creating a meal is an art and having every part of your meal ready on time is a science.  So that aspect left a little bit to be desired.  I suggest that these are eaten as soon as possible after baking.

I fed this to my family.  Because they were served a little cold my family was not as siked as I wanted them to be.  However, everyone wanted to try them again.  I really liked them and can’t wait to try right out of the oven.
