Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with foil.
Spread almond slices on baking sheet and toast in oven for 6-7 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven and set aside.
While almonds are toasting, toss butternut squash cubes to coat with half of the olive oil (2 tablespoons), half of the salt (½ teaspoon) and half of the pepper (¼ teaspoon). Spread out on the same foil-lined baking sheet you used to toast the almonds and roast for 20-25 minutes or until fork tender.
In a large bowl, toss cooked spelt with roasted butternut squash, scallions, parsley, toasted almonds and goat cheese.
Toss with lemon juice and zest plus the remaining olive oil (2 tablespoons), salt (½ teaspoon) and pepper (¼ teaspoon).
Check for seasoning and adjust accordingly. Serve warm, room temperature or cold.
