Butternut Squash - yum!

Postby CharleneK on Mon Feb 04, 2013 7:50 pm

Bought a butternut squash today, and went looking for a recipe to try it. I found this one somewhere and it was delicious! :D :D :D

3.5 Lb butternut squash, peeled & cut into 1" cubes
2 tbsp olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 cup parmesan or romano cheese


Combine all ingredients in a large bowl & toss well to coat.

Dish into an un-greased shallow baking dish (I used my stoneware 9"x12" pan).

Bake uncovered at 400 for 60 minutes. YUM! :D

I love Butternut Squash soup. I usually saute onions, celery and carrots and then toss in about one medium squash cubed and add broth until it reaches the top of the squash and cook until soft. I bring out my hand blender and blend until smooth.

Sometimes I had some curry powder (Epicure makes an excellent Mango Curry Mix) or cajun seasoning (love Hyes of Canada).

YUM!

I have also added it a strata of carrots, potatoes, zucchini, squash, cheese and milk. Season with Herb and Garlic Sea Salt and Pepper.
