Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place squash cut-side down in a microwave-safe dish; add 2 tablespoons water. Microwave, uncovered, on High until tender, 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, position rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler to high.

  • Pulse pistachios in a mini food processor until coarsely chopped. Add brown sugar, butter, sage and 1/4 teaspoon salt and pulse until the mixture starts to clump.

  • Cut each squash half into 4 pieces and place on a baking sheet. Brush the squash with oil, sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and top with the pistachio mixture. Broil, turning the pan from back to front halfway through, until the topping is browned, 2 to 3 minutes.
