Roasted Butternut Squash with Sage

One of my all-time favorite recipes. I eat this for lunch quite often...


3 pounds butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
2 Tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 large garlic cloves, minced
2 Tablespoons finely chopped fresh sage
1/3 cup pine nuts


1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper, or spray lightly with cooking spray.

2. In a medium bowl, toss butternut squash cubes with 1 1/2 Tablespoons olive oil, salt and pepper. Spread out on prepared baking sheet. Roast for 35 to 45 minutes, until squash is as tender as desired.

3. While squash is roasting, heat 1/2 Tablespoon olive oil in a small skillet. Add garlic, sage and pine nuts, and sauté until pine nuts are lightly browned. Remove from heat.

4. Scoop butternut squash into a large bowl. Scrape contents from the skillet onto the butternut squash and gently toss. Serve immediately.


*Add crumbled goat cheese on top for a little added yummy flavor.
