Roasted Butternut Squash
Cheese Spinach Filling
Step 1: Roasted Butternut Squash
Cut the squash in half lengthwise, then remove all of the seeds leaving that space hollow, and then start cutting the flesh with a crisis cross pattern. Place the squash in a baking dish, then drizzle some olive oil until the flesh is well coated, and sprinkle them with Moroccan spice, nutmeg, cumin, salt, and pepper. Rub the spices and oil evenly all over the squash, then place them in a preheated oven at 180°C or 356°F, and let them roast for about 50 minutes.
Step 2: Cheese Spinach Filling
In a mixing bowl, add the crumbled Feta cheese, nutmeg, olive oil, and blanched spinach, then mix everything until evenly combined, and set the filling aside. Grab the roasted butternut squash, then scrape and mash the flesh with a spoon, and spread them evenly. Put the cheese spinach filling on top, then put them back in the oven to bake for about 5 to 10 more minutes or until the cheese has melted. Garnish with pomegranate jewels if desired, then serve, and enjoy!
