Quick idea No. 1: Sauté diced squash with garlic, olive oil, and herbs. Use to top toasted baguette slices spread with goat cheese. Sprinkle with dill, mint, or basil.

Quick idea No. 2: Roast long thin slices of squash with garlic and olive oil until very soft. Layer in a pan with goat cheese, pesto, and finely chopped sun-dried tomatoes. Serve with multigrain crackers.
