Exclusively for Prime members in select ZIP codes.

Method

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Place whole squash on a baking sheet and roast until the skin is papery and a fork inserted into 2 or 3 different spots reveals very tender flesh, about 1 hour.

Serving Suggestions 

Serve as is, or spoon into gratins, casseroles, winter salads and stews. Purée in a food processor until smooth to make soups, risottos, dips and spreads, or gift-worthy baked goods such as pies, cookies and muffins.
