Roasted Butternut Squash


1 butternut squash

2 tablespoons of light brown sugar

salt & pepper to taste

evoo or unsalted butter



1. Pre-heat over to 400 degrees F.

2. Line baking sheet with foil.

3. Cut the butternut squash in half long ways, then scoop out the seeds.

4. Peel the squash. This can get tricky, I used a carrot peeler and it worked great. 

5. Chop up the squash into 1/4 inch cubes and arrange on the baking pan.

6. Sprinkle with salt & pepper. Then add the brown sugar. I made sure each cube got a little bit of brown sugar on it. 

7. If you use butter, melt 4-5 tablespoons, let is cool, and then drizzle over the cubes. If you use evoo lightly drizzle over the squash. The helps the squash to caramelize and adds great flavor.

8. Bake for 40-50 minutes and be sure to flip the cubes half way through for even roasting.
