  • In a bowl, mix butter, honey, salt and pepper.
  • Without reaching the bottom, make 3 vertical incisions to the halved squashes and 6 or 8 horizontal incisions (to result in thick squares).

  • Spread the mix over the squash (make sure you reach down between the incisions).
  • Toss the thyme over the squash.
  • Pour a swirl of olive oil over the thyme.
  • Bake for 45 minutes.

  • With a big spoon, separate the flesh from the crust but keep them contained in its rine.
