I’m not a huge fan of acorn squash, I’ll confess. If you are not and would like to substitute a summer squash instead, have at it. I suspect that is what I will do. Particularly at this time of the year.
The greens, however, sound fantastic and if you want perhaps you can mix them rather than just have one type. It’s up to you. No rules! Just try it.
