Step One: Pick your squash. Choose from varieties like butternut, acorn and delicata. We like 'em all.
Step Two:Roast. Slice in half crosswise, remove the seeds, and season the cavity generously with salt and olive oil. Roast in halves or thick slices at 375 degrees until a paring knife runs easily through. (Timing will depend on the size and shape.)
Step Three:Top. Use our pairings below as a guide, but feel free to mix and match.
