Method: 
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Toss squash with 3 tablespoons of oil, 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper, and transfer to a large rimmed baking sheet. Roast, tossing occasionally, until golden brown and tender, 30 to 40 minutes; set aside to let cool to room temperature.

Toss arugula in a large bowl with remaining 2 tablespoons oil, lemon juice, remaining pinch salt and remaining pinch pepper, then arrange on plates. Top with squash and prosciutto, and garnish with ricotta salata and walnuts. Serve immediately.
