Cucurbita pepo

I am often approached by my older customers seeking what they like to call a true squash. And this is the closest I can give them. Lovely flavour especially when roasted. To get the ‘spaghetti’ affect it needs baking. We cut in half, scoop out seeds, fill with eggs, cream, cheese and seasoning and bake first 20mins covered, last 10mins uncovered to crisp the top. Seriously yum.
