Any winter squash can be simply prepared by halving, removing the seeds and roasting. Some people like to save the seeds and roast them for a snack. Most squash have a creamy texture with spaghetti squash being the exception. It has a stringy spaghetti pasta shaped flesh when cooked.

Right now look for butternut, acorn, sweet dumpling and spaghetti squash. In the next few weeks other varieties and local pie pumpkins will be available as well.
