This recipe is based on using a slow cooker. Can also make on stove top. This squash is tough to peel so you can also take squash, cut in half, de-seed, and place cut side down in pan with about 1/2-1" water, cover and bake in oven util fork tender. Scoop out and place in pot on stove with other ingredients.
