Roasted Squash with feta, mint and chilli : A tasty mix

These ingredients just go so well together, and you can enjoy this recipe suggestion almost on its own! You may of course prefer to serve it with some oven baked chicken drumsticks or thighs, or perhaps something else, I wonder what may you choose!

Serves Four
2 small squash, halved
2 tbsp olive oil
2 large red onions, roughly chopped
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
200g (7oz) feta cheese, crumbled
50g (2oz) pine nuts
1 mild chilli finely chopped
handful of mint leaves, chopped

1. Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 6, 200°C, 400°F.
2. Cut the two squash in half, remove the pips with a spoon and discard. Scoop out some of the flesh (leaving a 1cm border) and roughly chop.
3. Place the squash halves on a roasting tray, season, drizzle with ½ tablespoon of oil. Roast for 40 minutes until tender.
4. Sauté the onion and chopped squash for 7 minutes until golden. Add the garlic and sauté the mixture for 3 more minutes.
5. Spoon the mix into the squash cavities, scatter with the feta cheese, pine nuts and chilli, season with salt and pepper and roast for another 10 minutes until the pine nuts are golden. Scatter with the mint leaves.

I confess I have never eaten this variety of squash. It looks/sounds delicious.
Hope you will enjoy the upcoming weekend, Jan.

That looks really interesting. It's been a while since I've tried yellow squash, I might have to give it another try.
