Roasted Calabaza
----------------
3 1/2 pound calabaza (Caribbean pumpkin; often sold in large wedges) or 
      butternut squash
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon pepper
lime wedges

Preheat oven to 475F with racks in upper and lower thirds.

Seed and peel calabaza, then cut into 3/4-inch-wide pieces (about 3 inches
long).

Toss with oil, salt, and pepper, then divide between 2 large shallow heavy
baking pans, spreading in one layer.

Roast calabaza, switching position of pans and turning calabaza over 
halfway through cooking, until tender and starting to caramelize, 35 to 45 
minutes.

Serve with lime.
