    Position rack in centre of oven, then preheat to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.

    Bake until squash is just slightly tender but still has some resistance when you stick a fork into it, about 25 minutes.

    Meanwhile, combine maple syrup and butter in a medium non-stick frying pan over medium. Bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring often, until mixture begins to thicken, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat.
