Expert Tips

Cooked squash rings can be cut in half so they fit better on a dinner plate. They are delicious with pork chops.

Winter squash has very hard outer skin, and is difficult to cut when uncooked. Microwaving the squash for a short period of time softens the skin and makes it easier to cut.
