Step 1Cut squash in half lengthwise and scoop out seeds. Place cut side down on parchment paper lined baking sheet. Roast in 400° F (200° C) oven for about 45 minutes or until tender; let cool slightly.
Step 2Meanwhile, wilt spinach in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Drain any liquid from pan. Toss with garlic.
Step 3Using a fork, scrape out squash and toss with oil, cheese, pepper and spinach mixture. Stir together ricotta and basil to combine.
Step 4Divide squash mixture among 4 bowls and top with ricotta mixture to serve.
If garlic bothers you, you can reduce the amount to 1 clove, minced.
