Some of the best Irish dishes are the simplest ones, based on solid, good quality ingredients, not treated in any fancy way but simply with a respect for their basic flavors and the way the ingredients interact with other foods. This recipe is one of those.
This is a very simple and tasty main course dish, with a great autumn table presentation. One medium squash cut in half makes two bowls for the filling. To serve 4, use two squash and double the recipe.
