No, I leave the skin on and eat them whole.

I like to hollow it out from the stem end, and make it look like a little bowl. Then I take sauteed onion, garlic and mushrooms (whatever kind you like or can find) and the chopped flesh I've dug out of the squash, and season it with some fresh herbs... one time thyme and marjoram, one time tarragon, one time savory, rosemary, one time all the provencal herbs, (all good!) [don't forget the salt and pepper!] and bake it in a 350 oven for about 45 minutes. I top it with breadcrumbs mixed with freshly grated Parmigiano (Asiago works well, too and there's a lot of it in Wisconisn) You could top it with fresh feta, too.

Wine is the food that completes the meal.

These are so low carb they would be a welcome addition to any diabetic, or low carb diet.

Thanks to all who responded.
Those are big 'uns! Slice them in half crosswise and saute or grill, or you can steam them whole, or slice them up like a zucchini. Don't peel them -- I don't think they would have much taste without it, and it would be major ugly on the plate! Again, don't overcook them.

not necessary to peel them just wash well and prepare as you want they are also good fried in some olive oil until just tender julienne cut them and use in stir fried dishes can also make a casserole with them

Ooooh all my favorite ways have been described. June I've gotta try that! We love patty pans sliced and grilled - brushing with oilive oil, balsamic vinegar, and lots of herbs. If I can find the tiny ones we just saute them in butter and top with fresh parm. They are also good sliced in a marinated veggie salad.
