  1. Place squash halves cut side down on a cutting board. Slice into 3/8-inch slices. Transfer slices to a bowl. Drizzle with olive oil; add salt and cayenne pepper. Toss to coat squash with oil.
  2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  3. Arrange squash pieces in a single layer on prepared baking sheet. Place in preheated oven until bottom of slices is browned and squash is tender, 12 to 18 minutes.


  • Chef's Note:
  • Bake times will vary depending on the thickness of the squash slices.
  • My "Pumpkin Spice Aioli" was mayonnaise seasoned with garam masala, turmeric, and hot paprika to taste.

This was a real discovery to me, I too thought these squashes were just decorative. This recipe is like making healthy candy, the squash is that sweet, and flavorful. The main problem is the pri...

Quick, easy and very good

I added a touch more cayenne, and really loaded the spice into the mayo dip, and we couldn't stop snacking on these. I think these will be excellent appetizers during the holidays, too!
