Here's one I shared recently in a similar thread on here. I think the thread was called whole food family recipes or something similar. If you search this forum for "tofu squash" the other thread will come up and you might find more ideas you like. Here it is:
We call this "tofu squash":
2-3 c butternut squash cut in 1/2"cubes- cook this 5 min in a large skillet in olive oil
Add 1 lb tofu cubed and sauté over med-high heat until at least some of the tofu is browned and the squash is tender, maybe 10-15 min. Add 3-4 scallions sliced, cook one min, remove from heat. Season liberally with pepper (1 tsp-ish) and salt to taste. Add sesame seeds if desired and soy sauce or Braggs liquid aminos if desired.
Serve with cooked pasta. Rice pasta or buckwheat pasta goes well but regular or whole wheat spaghetti is fine too. It might also be good over brown rice or another grain.
Adapted from a recipe in the "How it all Vegan"cookbook.
My kids are picky but both love the toe- food as they call it, and the noodles. I usually make a spinach rice spaghetti. One of them likes the squash but the other picks most of that out. Oh well, can't win them all.
