Sweet Meat Squash?

Hello all, I think I just bought one of these from my local farmers' market. It looks like a light greenish flat pumpkin. Anyone have any ideas of what to do with it? Thanks!

  1. Baked with Shallots, Raisins, Nuts and Rice
    Halve it, scoop seeds from cavity (can bake later if you want to keep them or sprinkle on top for crunch), fill cavities with raisins, chopped shallots, nuts, and drizzle with olive oil. Bake til flesh is tender, remove filling from cavity and reserve. Mash flesh, and add a dash of nutmeg if desired. Layer cooked black rice on a plate, then squash, then nut/raisin mixture.

    Make pie

    Use it to stuff ravioli or cannelloni

    Cube and cook it, then fill burritos with some kidney beans sauteed with onions, garlic, cumin, chili powder, cayenne, soy sauce, mustard; add cheese and roll up!
