1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Either spray a rimmed baking sheet with oil or line it with parchment paper. Set aside.
2. In a large bowl, toss the squash and onion with the oil; coat all pieces with the oil.
3. Arrange the squash and onion mix on the baking tray in a single layer. Roast veggies for about 25-30 minutes or until tender.
4. A few minutes before squash is done, melt butter in small skillet over medium-low heat. Mix in pecans, maple extract and cinnamon and cook for 1-2 minutes; Stir often so as not to burn the pecans! Remove from heat.
5. Place squash and onion in a bowl. Add in spinach, pecans and cranberries. Gently toss to combine. The spinach should start to soften due to the heat. Salt and pepper to taste.
6. Serve immediately.
