  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Score a 1cm-deep diamond pattern across the cut sides of the squash and rub all over with the oil.  Season and place cut side up on a baking tray. Roast for 40 mins until tender.
  2. Preheat the grill to high. Spread the sundried tomato paste evenly over the cut-side of the squash halves and top with slices of tomato and mozzarella. Grill for 2 mins until golden and bubbling.
  3. Meanwhile, toss the rocket with the balsamic dressing. To serve, scatter the squash with basil and serve with the dressed rocket.
