Serves: 8

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 90 minutes


4 ounces shredded Gruyere cheese, divided

2 cups heavy cream

5 cloves garlic, minced

2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves, chopped

05Spoon excess cream and cheese mixture over the squash.
06Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
07Uncover, and continue to bake for 30 more minutes.
08Top with the remaining cheese and sage leaves.
09Bake for a final 20-30 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and beginning to brown.
10Sprinkle with coarse finishing salt, if desired, and top with fresh herbs. Serve warm.
