INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a large soup pot, combine the butternut squash, garlic, olive oil, honey, paprika, cayenne, cinnamon, and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Toss well to combine. Pour onto a foil-lined baking sheet. Transfer to the oven and roast for 20-25 minutes or until the squash is tender. Turn squash halfway through.
