    I am overrun with hard-shell squash: butternut, carnvial & pumpkins
    & I am running out of ideas for cooking them.

    So far I have made:
    *roasted butternut
    *squash-filled enchiladas
    *pumpkin curry

    The freezer is full of cut-up pumpkin, the others are sitting on my kitchen table & the vines still have some fruit on them!

    I have a recipe for pumpkin soup but after that I could use some suggestions.
    Does anyone have a simple pie-filling recipe?
    I don't necessarily like pumpkin pie, but the custard filling is good on its own.
    Ooh! Pumpkin flan : 9 < anyone?

    You could dehydrate them!

    I like butternut squash filling in my ravioli! Mmmm.... I make my own! (I bet pumpkin would work too) Think savory.... with pepper and nutmeg. Yummmmm

    I do dry cherry tomatoes in the oven, but how long would pumpkin take?

    vfem: Mmmmm ravioli sounds like a great idea for all of the squashes!
    A friend & I made pasta last year using delicata squash & a bit of nutmeg in the dough - came out very tasty : 9
    I'm thinking sage for the ravioli (I cheat & use wonton wrappers for ravs.) With browned butter....

    No pie-filling/custard recipes?
    I may have to experiment with the one from the Libby's can.... [​IMG]
