2 tablespoons butter or margarine
Salt and pepper to taste

PREPARATION

  • Preheat oven to 400 °F.
  • Cut squash in half lengthwise and scoop out seeds.
  • Place cut side down on a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking sheet.
  • Roast until you can easily pierce it with a fork, about 45–50 minutes.
  • Place on a platter cut side up and allow to cool for a few minutes.
  • Scrape out squash lengthwise with a fork (it will look like spaghetti) and place in a large serving bowl.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and toss gently.

Serves 3–4. Prep time, 10 minutes; cook time, 45–50 minutes.

Cook’s note: The size of the squash may impact serving size and cook time.
