The cook books tell you to par boil them for 3 minutes and then freeze. I find they freeze better with liquid covering the squash. They last longer without freezer burn.
If you plan to use it in baking like zuccini bread, it is a lot easier to shred and freeze in recipe amounts.  Then it is ready to go when you are.

You could hollow it..............fill it with a meatloaf mix and bake a hole bunch of them....cool and freeze on a tray and then bag & mark & freeze for 6 months.  We use the machine that takes the air out.  Food lasts longer in them than in regular freezer bags.
