This recipe is easy and so delicious. My family raved the first time I made and raved again the next time. I omitted the cookies, because I didn't feel it needed it. One time, I didn't have fresh squash on hand, so I used cubed frozen butternut squash and it came out great, too. I couldn't find tagliatelle at my store, so I used linguine. Worked fine. It's unusual and so tasty.
