I'm not sure about the eating quality of a Lumina, but I bet it's about like a regular Jack O Lantern pumpkin, which is fair. With both of these I'd recommend that you split them in half, scoop out the seeds and lay the halves, face down, on a cookie tray. Then bake until you can easily penetrate them with a fork. Scoop out the flesh and ... you're ready to eat, or use it in recipes. If the flesh is stringy you can run it through a blender or food processor, which will improve the texture.

The resulting flesh can be used just like winter squash, for any pumpkin/squash recipe. Below is a link to a thread on winter squash recipes.

thanks for the link. i found some other recipes online as well but it's always good to deal with 1st hand experience. i also bought some small ( winter squash sized ) squash that are a creamy white with wide green vertical stripes. i split them, removed the seeds, & roasted them face down on a cookie sheet. even unseasoned these things are like candy. they are unbelievably tasty! i going to have to keep track of the names of these squash so that i can name what i'm looking. i also have 2 french squash that are green with faint orange vertical striped & are pumpkin shaped & are about twice the size of a softball.
