Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oven to 450 degrees. Place squash, cut sides up, on a baking pan. Season with salt and pepper. Place 1/2 tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon maple syrup into cavity of each squash, and sprinkle herbs over the tops.

  • Roast squash until very tender and well browned, basting frequently with syrup in the cavities, about 1 hour. Serve warm.

Cook's Notes

To keep the squash steady while baking, cut off a thin slice from the rounded sides; butternut squash also works well in this recipe.
