I’ve made tons of squash soup lately, but I can’t resist buying squash this time of year. So I bought a gorgeous Cinderella squash, orange and squat and lovely. And I cut it in half, put it in a pan with an inch of water (cut side down) and roasted it til soft. Took it out, drained the water, turned the halves over and let them cool. Then I scooped out the seeds and cut off the skin and put the squash in a container in the fridge. What next? Pie, that’s what. No, really. You'll love it. And it's far better for you than most of the pumpkin pie recipes floating around out there. Also lighter.
Either make a crust or buy your favorite pre-made crust. Pre-bake it or you’ll end up with a soggy mess. Consider a nut crust, if you're making one; the nuts give a textural contrast to the filling.
