Recipe: Baked Squash

Cut a slice from the top of the squash and remove the seeds and the string fibre. Now add

  • One tablespoon of melted butter,
  • One-half teaspoon of salt,
  • One-half teaspoon of paprika.

Cover closely with a lid and then bake in a slow oven until the pulp is tender, usually about thirty minutes. Remove the lip and scoop out the pulp with a spoon, piling it into a hot vegetable dish, and garnish with finely chopped parsley and then serve.
