Layer the squash in a large baking pan, lined with tin foil. Roast in the oven uncovered for 15 minutes.

While the squash is roasting, prepare the kale. In a pan on Med/High heat, lightly saute the kale for a few minutes in 1 Tbsp. of olive oil and salt & pepper to taste. This is to reduce the size of the kale.
