1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F.
2. Put your butternut squash in the microwave for 3-5 minutes to make it easier to cut (trust me, I wish I had known this trick a LONG time ago).
3. Cut your butternut squash in half. Coat both halves with olive oil, a pinch of salt, a pinch of pepper, and a pinch of garlic powder.
