Fall is officially here, which means it is time to indulge in pumpkins and squashes.
My favourite is the kabocha squash because it is naturally sweet. The easiest way to prepare this squash is to roast it whole in the oven (I like to do it at 350F for 1-2 hours) until you can easily pierce a knife through the skin. Let it cool and then cut the squash in half and harvest the flesh inside.
Another squash that I enjoy using is the spaghetti squash. Again, roast it or microwave it until tender. Once cool, cut in half and use a fork to shred the flesh into long strings. Pairing it with a tomato-based pasta sauce, and you have a satisfying yet light dinner option!
In terms of pumpkin, I personally find using canned pumpkin is the easiest. Just make sure to choose one that has no salt added to it!
