We love all the textures and the combination of sweet, nutty and roasted flavours that meld together perfectly in this recipe. It really is a treat for the senses!

COOKS TIP: The squash can be prepared and stuffed in advance ready for the final cooking time when required. Add some chilli flakes for extra heat.


  1. Preheat the oven to 200C, gas mark 6.
  2. Place the halved squash on a large baking tray, drizzle with 2 tsp oil and season well. Roast for 45 minutes until just tender. Allow to cool while you make the stuffing.
  3. Heat the remaining oil in a large frying pan and fry the onion, pepper and pine nuts for 5 minutes until softened.
  4. Meanwhile, place the spinach in a large bowl, cover with clingfilm and microwave on high for 2 minutes until just wilted, squeeze out excess juice and chop.
  5. Mix together the spinach, chestnuts, ground almonds, sultanas and pumpkin seeds then mix in the onion mixture. Season well.
  6. Scoop out the flesh of the squash, leaving a 2cm border around the edges, roughly chop and stir into the stuffing. Press the stuffing into the squash shells and roast for 20-25 minutes until tender.
  7. Cut each in half and serve with salad.
