Try a Squash

Try a tasty squash for dinner. Simple to make, very versatile, and season as you wish for a savory or sweet delight.

General prep: Cut squash in half and scoop out the seed cavity. Brush with oil & Roast in oven for 45-60min (depending on size and quantity) OR microwave 1-2 halves for 6-8min, cut side down, in a little water until soft.  Variations are endless from there. But a few favorites include:

1. Rake out a cooked Spaghetti Squash flesh with a fork, onto a plate, and top with your favorite sauce and seasonings (like ground pepper, garlic salt and marinara.)

2. Wedge/slice a mostly-cooked Sun Spot Kabocha squash instead of a potato for oven fries. Brush with olive oil and season as you wish (like salt/pepper, or season salt , or garlic salt). Roast until tender/crispy, about 10min.

3. Roast or microwave a cooked Festival Squash, stuffed with browned ground beef and/or sausage & onions, topped with cheddar cheese, about 15min or until hot throughout.

4. Top a cooked Delicata squash with slices of butter, a fist full of brown sugar, and a sprinkle of  cinnamon.  Bake or microwave until hot throughout. Yum!!
