Baked Butternut Squash

In the past when I've gotten butternut squash I always made soup with it. That's very delicious and all but I wanted to try something new. I decided to try this recipe and loved it! It's the perfect side dish for the fall and it was easy to make.

  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 1/2 pounds butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
In a large bowl, combine the parsley, oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Add squash and toss to coat.

Transfer to an ungreased shallow 2-qt. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 400 degrees F for 50-55 minutes or until squash is just tender.

That sounds good! I've only ever made sweet baked butternut squash -- you know, with butter and brown sugar and etc. This savory version sounds great!
