Recipe by Linda Marrone, former Market Manager.

Cozy warming winter squash recipe. This is a simple side dish that can serve a large group. 

Ingredients

Winter squash of your choice
1 cup grated pepper jack cheese
1∕3 cup sun-dried tomatoes
1∕2 cup half-and-half
 

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Cut winter squash in half, cleaned, with the seeds scooped out. Place the squash in a pan of water cut-side down.
Bake about 30-40 minutes – depending on the size of the squash. You want to let the squash cool and remove the skin and cut it into cubes.
 
In a buttered casserole layer half the squash and tomatoes, sprinkle with half the cheese, repeat. Pour the half-and-half over top. Bake 350 until cheese melts and top begins to brown – about 30 minutes.
