This is an old favorite.
I added the fruit for sweetness and the beans for fiber.
Every time I make this, I get so angry because I always buy the fresh squash and then I have to peel and cut it up.
Don’t do that. You will save at least a half hour by paying the extra money and buying the cut up squash. The frozen is too watery.
