6 mini pumpkins or squash such as Baby Bear, Munchkin, Jack Be Little, Gold Nugget, or Wee-B-Little, 6 to 8 oz. each
About 2 tsp. olive oil
Kosher salt and pepper, to taste


1. Preheat oven to 400°. If needed, cut a thin slice from bases of pumpkins so they sit flat. Set on a rimmed baking sheet, rub with a little oil, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake until tender when pierced, 40 to 45 minutes.

2. Cut off lids about 2 in. wide. Carefully scrape out seeds with a small spoon, keeping walls and bases intact. If you accidentally get a hole in the pumpkin, line it with a piece of foil.
