Method

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Halve the squash lengthwise. Using a spoon, scoop out and discard seeds.

If desired, peel with a vegetable peeler or cut into big chunks and keep steady on the cutting board while cutting off the peel with a knife. Cut into 1-inch cubes.

Transfer to a large rimmed baking sheet. Toss with oil, salt and pepper and spread out in a single layer.

Roast for 25 to 30 minutes or until squash is tender, turning once halfway through with a metal spatula.

Remove from oven and use immediately or cool for later use.
