Picture of roasted butternut squash
Roasting is my favorite way to prepare butternut squash - it has so much more flavor than steaming it or cooking it at a lower temp. :D

Plus, it's quick and simple - roasting a butternut squash only takes about a half hour, so it's a nice quick side for whatever else you're eating.

I roasted this butternut squash for my mini-thanksgiving-how-to. More info on that later!


Step 1: What you'll need

Picture of What you'll need
  • a butternut squash
  • olive oil
  • salt & pepper
  • (optional but tasty) fresh sage

You'll also need a rimmed baking sheet and an oven preheated to 400 F.

You don't have to peel 'em. . .scrub, and cook with peel on, good fiber! (and not hard to chew)
