Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Adjust an oven rack to the lower-middle position and heat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  3. Brush the oil on the foil and the cut sides of the squash. Place squash halves face down.
  4. Roast until a skewer inserted in the squash meets no resistance, about 40-50 minutes.
  5. When the squash is almost done, melt the butter in a small skillet over medium heat.
  6. Add the sage and cook, swirling the pan occasionally, until the butter is golden brown and the sage is crisp, about 4 to 5 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat.
  7. Remove the squash from the oven and turn cut-side up and season with salt and pepper.
  8. Drizzle or brush with the sage butter sauce and sprinkle with brown sugar. Serve immediately.
