Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut squash in half, remove seeds, rub flesh side lightly with 1 Tbsp. of the olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper and place flesh side down on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake until tender enough to easily pierce with a knife, about 30 to 45 min. Remove squash from oven, set aside to cool and reduce oven to 350 degrees. Press thawed puff pastry dough into a 9-inch tart or pie pan. Sprinkle half of the crushed pink peppercorns across puff pastry and press them into the dough. Prick dough several times with a fork and place in oven to par-bake for 5 min., then remove from oven and set aside. When squash is cool enough to handle, peel off skin and chop flesh into large pieces. Place squash in a food processor and pulse until almost smooth. Add shallots, Limnos Lamb Rub and half of the goat cheese and pulse to combine. With food processor running, drizzle in remaining 2 Tbsp. oil until mixture is well combined and smooth. Spread filling onto par-baked crust and sprinkle with remaining goat cheese. Bake for 25 to 35 min. until goat cheese has melted and tart is slightly golden. Serve warm scattered with fresh herbs.
