Place squash on a sheet pan lined with parchment and bake for 40-45 minutes, tossing every 15 minutes, to allow for even browning. Sprinkle with 1½ teaspoons more of spice mixture. Toss gently to coat and serve hot.

Feel intimidated having to deal with cutting and peeling a squash?

 Here’s a video on how to make this easier.  Basically you will want to pierce the squash with a knife all over and then place in the microwave for a few minutes.  This softens the skin making it so much easier to peel.
