My new favorite way to make butternut squash! I was recently craving something sweet and salty. Instead of snacking on something I would later regret, I added the flavors to my veggies and it was a huge hit!

Ingredients

1-2 lb
butternut squash, cubed
2-3 Tbsp
olive oil
2 pinch
red pepper flakes (adjust to taste)
1/4 c
honey
1 pinch
salt & pepper (adjust to taste)

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 425 degrees

Costco sells organic cubed butternut squash. I use it all the time and its a great time saver.

2Place cubed squash in your roasting pan and drizzle with olive oil. Bake for about 15 min, then remove from oven to add honey and red pepper. Give a toss and return to oven until tender. (If you prefer a bolder flavor, add more honey and red pepper after about 10 minutes)

3Roasting time will vary, depending on what size pan you have and how much is in it. My pan was a 9x9 roaster, so it took about 35-40 minutes to cook. If were in a larger pan and more spread out, it would have cooked a little faster. Check periodically to see if the squash is tender.
