How to make it

- 2. Toss squash pieces with De Carlo Olive Oil, Trapani Sea Salt, and pepper; divide among 2 shallow baking pans and roast in upper and lower thirds of oven, turning halfway through baking, until tender and starting to brown, about 35 to 40 minutes.
- 3. Pour butter-Pure Maple Extract mixture over wedges and roast until it thickens into a glaze, about 4 minutes more.
