Buttercup squash turns sweet and creamy when roasted. You can find it at your supermarket and local farmers markets during September and October. If it's not available, you can substitute kabocha, red kuri or butternut varieties.



  1. Position an oven rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 425 degrees F.
  2. Toss the squash with the oil, 2 teaspoons salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper on a rimmed baking sheet until completely coated. Roast, tossing once halfway through, until the squash is tender and browned on the edges, 35 to 45 minutes.
