Prepare & roast the squash
1 Prepare & roast the squash

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Fill a small pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the ends of the squash. Halve lengthwise; using a spoon, scoop out and discard the pulp and seeds. Transfer to a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; turn to coat. Arrange cut side down. Roast 18 to 20 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven. Carefully flip the squash to be cut side up.
