Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

  • Drizzle each squash half with 1 tablespoon oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place the squash cut-side down on a rimmed baking sheet and tuck 2 garlic cloves under each half. Add water to the pan. Roast until the squash is tender, about 30 minutes.
