Roasted Butternut Squash

Good morning,

I am leaving you with one of my favorite fall recipes, Roasted Butternut Squash.  I make a big batch of this and I freeze some of it and I use some of the left overs, for  lunch, on my Butternut Squash Pizza, or make soup, mashed potatoes ect.  I never realized how versatile Butternut Squash is.  It’s so good and so good for you!  Can’t complain about that!!!

Roasted Butternut Squash

First you peel

Then you cut off the ends and scoop the seeds and squash guts out.


Add some olive oil and spices, and then throw in oven.

Serve and Eat!

Roasted Butternut Squash

5 Cups of Butternut Squash – diced

1 Tbsp. Olive Oil

1/4 tsp. Salt

1/2 tsp. Pepper

1/2 tsp. Ground Cinnamon (More to tatse if you like, personally I love a lot of cinnamon)

1/4 Cup Onion – sliced or diced

3 Tbsp. Raisins


Preheat oven to 400

Line a baking sheet with Parchment Paper.

In a bowl toss the squash and onions with olive oil and season with salt, pepper and cinnamon.  Add the mixture to your lined baking sheet.

Bake the squash for 15 minutes, then flip it so it cook evenly.  Place back in oven for another 15 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.

Once out of the oven, add your raisins, and serve in a pretty bowl!
