Squash Sweetness

Making squash dishes can be as simple or as fancy as you like. This time around I took the fancy route. I've got a wedge of squash, covered it with crushed garlic, sliced shitake mushrooms and chopped bacon. Then topped it pinch of salt and pepper and dash of olive oil. Into a preheat oven the squash went.

Roughly 45 minutes later, I tasted the soft sweetness of the squash with the trimmings. Mmm... Yummy.

Didn't know it took that long to bake that little thing. But hey, it was well worth the wait.

Hey.. I tried 350degree for 50 min. It came out okay but dry and not soft enough. ???

I cut the squash into wedges and gave them a good random stabs with knife to get it done soft and quick. To maintain moisture, top up preferably with more bacon, :) or olive oil mid way through baking. You might want to cover them up with tin foil towards the last 15 minutes of the baking.

No standard solutions, just more of trial and error. Good luck and have fun.
