Step 1: Cut Squash
Preheat oven to 400.
Wash the squash well and then split in half and scoop out the insides. Slice the squash in 1/2 inch slices and arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet.
You don't need to pre-soften this squash, it's not as tough as butternut and the skin is edible.
Step 2: Sweeteners
Mix the brown sugar, olive oil, and maple syrup (and nuts if wanted) together in a bowl. Next you can either toss the squash slices into the bowl or drizzle the mixture over the squash.
Step 3: Bake
Bake at 400 for 20-30 minutes. Serve immediately.
