2 squash, peeled, seeded and cubed (Hint, some stores have butternut squash already peeled and cubed. Makes a good time saver.)
1 TBSP maple syrup
2 TBSP olive oil
3 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 TBSP of rosemary
Pepper and salt to taste.
Toss, cubed butternut squash in maple syrup, olive oil, garlic, rosemary, pepper, and salt.
Bake at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes until softened. You will be able to pierce with a fork.
Another option other than a side dish….. If you are looking for a yummy soup, you can now add the baked squash with 1 quart of vegetable broth and 1 can of no salt added white kidney beans to a food processor.
