    2. Place halved squash cut side down on lightly greased baking sheet. Brush skin with oil. Bake for 40 minutes or until easily pierced with a fork. Remove from oven to cool.

    3. Combine broth, rosemary and zest in a cooking pot. Using a spoon scrape cooked pulp of squash away from skin. Add to pot.
