Roasted Cinnamon Butternut Squash

As a healthy side dish or a not-too-sweet treat, this recipe makes butternut squash the perfect complement to a crisp, fall day. Plus, it has a nutty, almost pumpkin-like taste that you won’t feel guilty about indulging in!

Ingredients (Makes 6 Servings):

1          medium butternut squash, peeled/seeded and cut into 1” cubes
2          tbsp olive oil
1          tbsp brown sugar
1          tsp ground cinnamon
1/4       tsp salt
1          tsp ground black pepper


1. Preheat oven to 425°F.

2. In a large bowl, toss the cut squash with olive oil, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt and black pepper. Transfer to a foil-lined baking sheet. Place the squash in a single layer, without overcrowding the pieces.

3. Roast 40 minutes, rotating pan midway during baking. Remove from oven immediately when edges are browned and pieces are fork tender.
