Help me identify and cook this squash!

justme123 | Sep 9, 2013 01:47 PM

Hi all- as part of my farmshare this week, we received a winter squash. Ordinarily they walk you through the basket and tell you what you received- for some reason they didn't do that this week and I have no idea what the heck this is. It was hiding under the huge head of lettuce otherwise I would have asked when I picked it up. I think it is either a buttercup or carnival squash (thanks google!). It is shaped like a small pumpkin (sugar pumpkin size) and is green with yellowish white striations.

So, any cooking advice/recipes? I was thinking of cubing and roasting it with some cayenne pepper next weekend or maybe makding a soup. But, perhaps these types lend themselves to a better/different cooking method?

Any advice is appreciated.
