|Bake half a recipe in a pie pan|
* I used 3 big(ger) squashes- sliced from neck down until I got through the neck.
Then I halved them lengthwise, and lengthwise again.
Continued slicing these lengthwise quarters about the same thickness as the neck.
** I steamed, rather than boiled, my squash slices.
*** For 1/2 the recipe, I used a pie pan.
