Preparation Ideas: Preheat oven to 400 F. Cut squash in half verically. Tip: if too difficult to cut, place squash in oven for approximately 15 minutes on baking sheet, to soften skin. Scrape out seeds and fiber. Brush olive oil on the flesh. Place halves, skin side up, on parchment lined baking sheet and place in oven. When the skin is easily pierced with a knife, remove from oven. Allow to cool slightly and peel or cut skin off flesh. Mash like potatoes and season with salt & pepper.
