  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place squash cut side up on a rimmed baking sheet. Divide the sauce among the 4 halves. Brush cut edge of squash with olive oil to prevent drying out.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until squash is soft and sauce is hot, about 1 1/2 hours.
  4. Serve squash with grated Parmesan cheese.


  • Cook's Note:
  • If squash halves don't sit up, you may need to shave the bottoms to stabilize them.
