ROASTED BUTTERNUT SQUASH AND CARAMELIZED ONIONS

 Roasted Squash

3-4 cups of Butternut Squash, diced

2 tablespoons Olive Oil

Salt and Pepper

 Caramelized Onions

2  large Yellow Onions, sliced into rings

2 tablespoons Butter

2 teaspoons Sugar

Salt and Pepper

 In a medium sized bowl, combine diced butternut squash, olive oil, salt and pepper. 

Toss to coat well and place on a parchment lined, cookie sheet in a 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes.

In a large sauté pan over medium high heat, melt the butter . 

Add the onion and sugar. 

Stir and cook for approximately 20 minutes, stirring frequently (especially at the end) to keep from sticking and burning. 

 Add salt and pepper to your liking.  Onions will be done when they reach a rich, brown color.

Put the butternut squash into a medium sized, heat resistant bowl. 

Add the caramelized onions. 

Toss gently and serve immediately.
