Ingredients

Traditional Roast:

Sweet Roast:

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Don’t skip the parchment paper as this will prevent the squash from sticking to the pan.
  • While the oven is preheating, begin preparing your squash. Start by cleaning the skin of the squash well since you will be consuming it.
  • Next, cut off the ends of each of your squash and slice them down the middle lengthwise to reveal the pulp and seeds. Use a large spoon to scrape the seeds out of the squash.
  • Slice the squash into 1/2-inch thick slices and add to a bowl with your seasonings and oil and toss to coat.
  • Arrange the squash on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, then remove from the oven and flip the squash and bake for an additional 5 to 10 minutes until the squash is fork tender and golden brown. Enjoy the squash immediately for best taste!
