DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  • Peel squash, cut in half lengthwise and remove the seeds. Cut the squash into 1" to 1 1/2" cubes (large and uniform is best), and place in a bowl. Drizzle olive oil over the chunks and toss them around with your hands to evenly distribute the oil.
  • Mix brown sugar, (if using) salt and pepper together and sprinkle it over the squash pieces. Toss around again to evenly distribute the seasoning. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and spread squash in a single layer.
  • Roast for 40-45 minutes, until the squash is tender and the glaze begins to caramelize, turning a few times to ensure even browning. Serve.
