How to make butternut squash with feta and tomato mousse?

Here how it goes: first tomato and feta mousse. I have roasted cherry tomatoes and garlic until soft, then blended it into a paste. Then I have mixed it with egg, sour cream, feta cheese and spices until smooth and fluffy. First part is ready.

Next, I have roasted butternut squash for the first time for about 20 min. In order to speed the process up, I made small incisions. Then I scooped out some of the flesh and then added the heavenly mixture of sweet roasted tomatoes and salty feta cheese.

Then butternut squash is back to the oven for the second time in order to unite all the flavours into one holy flavourful matrimony.
