Only a few ingredients are needed to create a tasty and elegant looking side dish.

If preparing more than one squash, place them on a large baking sheet. To keep them from rolling (and spilling the cream), cut off a small slice from the rounded bottoms of each so they sit flat on the pan.

    Oh I shall have to repeat as I didn’t tick the tap for notification when I receive a reply. Best way to serve ? Should I mix soft inside and cream together and serve.
    Thank you, Elaine.

    We just eat it as is, scooping out a bit of the squash with some of the cream/cheese. But by all means you could mash it up all together in its shell and eat it like mashed potatoes 🙂
