Preheat the oven to 200°C, gas mark 6. Line a baking tray with baking paper.


Halve the butternut and scoop out the seeds. Place one half, cut side down, on a chopping board.


Align a chopstick lengthways along one side of the squash. Using a very sharp knife, carefully slice through the squash to the chopstick at ½cm intervals. Repeat with the remaining half.


Arrange 8 of the rosemary sprigs between every other slice.


In a small bowl, whisk together 45ml (approx. 3 tbsp)olive oil and honey until combined.


Place both halves of the butternut on the tray – cut side down – and drizzle with the olive oil-honey mixture. Season with 1/2 tsp of salt. Cover tightly with aluminium foil and roast for 20 minutes before removing the foil. Roast for a further 20-30 minutes or until golden.


Finely chop the remaining rosemary. Peel the garlic clove.


Heat the rest of the oil in a non-stick frying pan placed over a medium heat. Once hot, add the breadcrumbs, sea salt and rosemary. Crush or grate in the garlic. Sauté, often stirring, until it turns golden, approx. 3-4 minutes. Transfer the pangratato to a bowl.


Sprinkle the pangratato over the hasselback butternut and serve.
