Cut the squash in half, keep the seeds, and roast the squash at 400 for 40 minutes.
Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a frying pan, and saute the seeds for a few minutes, or until light brown. Remove from pan and set aside.
In the same pan, fry the sage leaves until they are brown and crispy. Mix sage with the pumpkin seeds and set aside.
