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!

Prep:

Cook:

Method:

Bake

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)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 425 degrees

Costco sells organic cubed butternut squash. I use it all the time and its a great time saver.
2
Place 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)
3
Roasting 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.
