Preheat oven to 350 degrees and coat a small gratin with cooking spray.
Melt butter in a small saucepan and add shallot and garlic. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until softened. Add sage, nutmeg, and cayenne pepper.
Stir in flour to coat. Whisk in milk until it begins to thicken. Stir in parmesan to melt. Stir in winter squash.
