Hamburger Squash (butternuts with hamburger stuffing)

In honour of all my American friends on DC, I've named this Hamburger Squash

You will need:

2 medium butternut squash
1 pound of ground beef (hamburger)
1 large onion chopped
1 tin of chopped seeded tomatoes
2 tbsps of Worcestershire Sauce
1 tsp of sweet paprika
2 tsps of indian curry powder or paste
light olive oil for frying
sea salt and ground black pepper to taste
Grated mozzarella to top (about 1-2 cups) depending on your taste.
4 tsps of softened butter.

Cut butternuts in half lenghtways. Steam for 40 mins or until tender. Scoop out the seeds and some of the flesh to make a hollow for stuffing. Place in a baking dish cut side up. Rub each half with 1 tsp of butter, season with salt and pepper.

In a large pan add light olive oil and chopped onion. Fry till soft then add curry and paprika. Brown a little. Add ground beef and fry till lightly brown, add worcestershire sauce, chopped tomatoes and season with salt and pepper. Now fill the butternut halves with ground beef and top with grated mozzarella. Lightly season with more salt and pepper. Bake for 20-30 mins at 350F and place under broiler or grill for 5 more mins till golden.
Serve with basmati or long grain white rice. Mix a pat of butter into the rice for extra flavour.
