The Healthy Hat: Butternut Squash

I wouldn’t really call this a recipe, but it’s amazing. I have literally been eating this by the handfuls. I followed my mother-in-laws easy steps to get this simple side dish. Baking it in the oven makes it a little crispie.

Baked Butternut Squash

Time: 30 minutes
Oven: Pre-heat to 400 degrees

Take butternut squash and cut into squares (they sell this at Costco already prepared). Then, place into a bowl. Toss squash with 2-3 tablespoons of Olive Oil (depending on how much squash you have). Then, lay the squash squares on to a dark cookie sheet (not too close together).

Season with salt and pepper. Place the cookie sheet into the oven and bake for 30 minutes (flipping every 10 minutes). Remove from the oven, allow to cool and then enjoy!
