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.
