Roasted Butternut Squash
To roast butternut squash you can either roast cut in half, cut side down, in a pan with a little water for about 1-1½ hours and then scoop out of the skin or peel, seed, cube and roast for about 30 minutes on high heat. My version uses a light marinade to oil the cubed squash and add a little sweetness.I keep it simple, but feel free to add herbs or spices to the recipe. Minced garlic, sage, rosemary or whatever you think will go well with the squash.
