A simple and fool-proof way to prepare almost any kind of winter squash - though acorn and delicata squash work best. The herbs will infuse into the squash delightfully.



  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F.
  2. Wash the outside of the squash well and then cut each squash in half. Scoop out the seeds from the center, saving to toast if you like
  3. Rub olive oil into the inside of the squash and stab the inside with a fork several times.
  4. Lightly the inside of the squash with sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  5. Tuck a few sprigs of fresh herbs inside each of the squash halves and place them face down (so the herbs are trapped) on an ungreased backing sheet.
  6. Roast for 35-45 minutes or until the squash is tender.
