½ cup maple syrup
4 tsp. dark brown sugar
½ cup chopped pecans
A pinch of salt
1 teaspoons butter diced

Place parchment paper on a baking sheet and preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a bowl  add cubed squash, maple syrup, brown sugar, salt and pecans and toss together. pour onto  baking sheet and  place the diced  butter  on top.

Bake for 35 min. or until squash is tender with a fork and  serve.
