How to Roast Squash. Squash is a wonderful vegetable with many flavorful varieties. But if you're tired of eating it raw with dip, or tossing it in linguine, then why not try roasting it? With just a few simple ingredients you can roast squash in no time. Here's a recipe.

Roast Squash

Step 1

Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees.

Step 2

Peel your squash using a paring knife if the squash skin is soft. If the skin is tough, take a butcher knife and hack into it on a cutting board. Once the squash is opened or peeled, remove and discard any seeds, and then cut the "meat" of the squash into 1-inch cubes.

Step 3

Spray the baking sheet with a non-stick spray and arrange the squash in a single layer.

Step 4

Drizzle squash with enough olive oil to cover them. Then add salt and pepper to taste.

Step 5

Pop the sheet in the oven for 40 minutes and you are done. You can add the roasted squash to your salads, or simply serve as a side dish.
