Roasted Butternut Squash

20140404_130748

So, I’ve had this butternut squash just hanging out on the counter for awhile.  I’ve really only made soup with butternut squash, so I was on the lookout for a new delicious recipe.  Then it hit me….roast it.  Duh.  Here is a crazy easy recipe for roasted butternut squash.

Ingredients
1 butternut squash – peeled, seeded, and cut into 1-inch cubes
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
salt and ground black pepper to taste

Instructions
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
2.
Toss butternut squash with olive oil and garlic in a large bowl. Season with salt and black pepper. Arrange coated squash on a baking sheet.
3.
Roast in the preheated oven until squash is tender and lightly browned, 25 to 30 minutes.

See how easy this is? Peel, chop, drizzle, cook, eat.

I was really happy with the way this turned out.  Definitely a fun side.  The squash was perfectly cooked.  I think that butternut squash has a hint of sweetness.  That sweet paired with the garlic and s&p is a winning combination.  Flavorful but not overwhelming.  I pan seared some chicken, butter, and Italian seasonings to have with the squash.  Quick and easy for those rushed evenings.

Try it out!

Happy eating!
