  • Wrap each squash spear with a half slice of prosciutto, then place on a baking sheet. Brush any remaining olive oil mixture from the bowl onto the spears.

  • Roast for 15 minutes or until the squash can easily be pierced with a fork.

Notes

This recipe is for 4 servings. Each serving is 2 spears.
Honeynut squash does not need to be peeled because the skin is so thin.
If you can't find honeynut, substitute butternut squash.
Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
