BUTTERY CALABASH

Bibi Ayesha, an admin on our Watalotwegot group, Shares with us this rather simple dish.  But don't be fooled, as this simple fuss-free dish, makes for a wonderful side dish.  So Why not add it to your dinner table soon, would be perfect with grilled meats, fish or even all on it's own for a "Meat-Free" day. 
What is Calabash...for those that do not know, it is better known as "Bottle Gourd" or "White-Flowered Gourd". Next time you pass this in the Vegetable Aisle of your supermarket, grab one, so you too can give this recipe a try.
