  • 5 pounds assorted squash such as buttercup, delicata, kabocha and carnival
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons minced sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon ancho chile pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

Step 1Heat the oven to 375 degrees. Cut the squash in half and remove seeds. Cut into one-half-inch thick slices. It is not necessary to peel the squash. Toss the squash with olive oil, 1 teaspoon of the salt, and the pepper.

Step 2Arrange the squash in a single layer on two large baking pans with sides. Bake 45 minutes to 1 hour, until the squash is lightly browned and tender.

Step 3Heat the butter until melted. Stir in the sage, chile pepper and cumin. Brush the squash with the butter mixture during the last 5 minutes of baking.
