Step 2: Brown and Roast the Squash

Take your olive oil or butter and add 2 teaspoons to the pan. Heat on medium low until ready.

1. Add the half-moons. Stir until coated thoroughly, and let them saute until golden-brown, about 10 minutes total. Stir throughout.

2. Add the lid.  Then, pop them in the oven. Set your timer for 10 minutes, then check. If they pierce easily with a fork, but retain their shape, they're ready to serve.

3. For fillings or soups, add another 5 to 10 minutes. Or, leave the lid on and let the steam do the job.

Let them cool and have at them!
I've cut smaller one's in half and baked them with a little butter or olive oil in them (and a touch of salt) in the hollow portion.
Yum! That sounds delicious.
