I've cooked up this squash more times than I can count since focusing on low carb options for pasta replacement. Our favorite is simple with marinara and meatballs.

The last time I roasted one, I put it in the oven and headed outside to mow the grass. Came back inside and it was ready to come out of the oven. Multi tasking is amazing!
