We’re grateful to winter squash for many things -- for making our Thanksgiving pies emblematic, for helping to graciously fill the holes in our lives that appear when tomatoes finally leave the market for another year. But right now, in the thick of fall, we’re grateful to these recipes for keeping us cozy. Like the vegetable equivalent of a sweater, winter squash has a heft unlike any other vegetable we know -- a heft we need in our soups to keep us warm, our kale salads to keep us satiated, and our pastas to make them feel a little more like October.

Live.Love.Lux Tip: With Multi-Stage Cooking, your Electrolux wall oven helps you prepare your squash dishes any way you desire with seven cooking modes, including: Bake, Convection Bake and Convection Roast.

Put these five savory recipes at the top of your kitchen list -- you’ll be glad you did.
