I boiled the squash for 5 minutes covered, peeled with a veggie peeler, cubed, tossed with olive oil, salt, pepper, and 2 cloves minced garlic. Baked for 20 min at 400F, tossed with the spinach and cheese, and baked 10 more minutes. Awesome! Nutty and earthy! - 10/26/08

Sounds delicious. Tonight I am going to try scooping out the flesh after baking, mashing with the spinach and cheese and returning to the skins until browned. I hope it will work... maybe with some couscous.
