Roasting a Butternut Squash

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Using a large sturdy knife, cut the butternut squash in half lengthwise.

Scoop out the seeds and stringy pieces from each half.

Transfer the butternut squash, cut side down (optional to season with salt and pepper) onto a parchment-lined baking dish or pan.

Roast for approximately 45 minutes, or until fork tender.

Remove from oven and carefully flip over to allow steam to release. When the squash is cooled, scoop out the flesh.
