Since it’s just me, and a butternut squash is sometimes too much, I will use the same mix, but on rings of acorn squash. Thicker tends to work better. For acorn squash, I cook at 400-425 and just keep an eye on it until they look done.
@once_upon, for butternut squash, someone told me years ago to throw it in the microwave a few minutes before peeling and cutting. It was life-changing.
I usually just go at the acorn squash with my knife, but the microwave would probably help here too.
