Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Slice squash in circular discs about 1/8 inch thick, leaving seeds.

In a small bowl mix tahini, tamari, cayenne and water, adding a bit of water to get a creamy consistency. In a large bowl, mix squash slices in sauce until each piece is coated. Place on a non-stick baking sheet, sprinkle with pepper and place in the oven for 15 minutes. Flip pieces and bake another 15 minutes, or until the squash is soft and tender.
