- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Combine the oil, honey and salt in a large bowl. Add chunks of squash and toss to coat well.
- Spread on a rimmed baking sheet and roast for 25-30 minutes, or until tender.
- Meanwhile, melt the butter in small saucepan and add the sage leaves. Turn off heat and let steep. When squash is cooked, toss with the butter mixture in a bowl; sprinkle with nuts and serve.
