In order to prepare the squash balls, first of all peel and cut the squash into slices. Then place them on tray covered with a sheet of baking paper. Season them with a filet of olive oil and a pinch of salt. Then, let them bake in preheated static oven at 200°C for 30 minutes.

At this point, your balls are ready to be served hot and with a string cheese heart.
