Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F Halve the squash lengthwise. Using a spoon, scoop out and discard seeds.
  2. If desired, peel with a vegetable peeler or cut into big chunks and keep steady on the cutting board while cutting off the peel with a knife.
  3. Cut into 1-inch cubes. Transfer to a large, rimmed baking sheet. Toss with oil, salt and pepper and spread out in a single layer.
  4. Roast, tossing occasionally, until just tender and golden brown, about 30 minutes. Stop cooking squash but keep it warm.
  5. Use a fork to mash together blue cheese and lemon juice in a large bowl to make a thick smooth dressing. Season with salt and pepper; set aside.
  6. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  7. Add onions, salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, about 5 minutes.
  8. Add spinach and cook, tossing often, until slightly wilted and warm, 1 to 2 minutes more.
  9. Transfer contents of skillet to bowl with dressing, add squash, salt and pepper and toss to combine.
