Butternut, acorn, spaghetti, Hubbard, banana, turban and even pumpkin are just some of the many types of squash available in your produce section this time of year. While some of these squashes, with their hard outer shells, may look more like doorstops than good eats, in my opinion they are some of the most perfect gems in the produce aisle. Here are the nutritional stats for most squashes:
The thick skin on these squashes allows them to keep for several weeks in a cool, dry place. Prep a squash for eating by carefully splitting it lengthwise with a sharp butcher-style knife and scooping out the seeds. Sprinkle the flesh side with salt and pepper and place the cut-side down on a foil-lined sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. If you would rather cook the squash in the microwave, cut it into quarters and place it in a covered microwave-safe casserole dish. Zap it on high for 4 to 8 minutes. When cooked, the insides will scoop out like mashed potatoes. Spaghetti squash comes out like strands of ‘noodles’, which you can top as you would pasta. You can also skin the squash and cut it into 1.5-inch cubes, brush it with olive oil and grill on a skewer for several minutes.
