Recipe type: Side dish, Vegetable
One butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cut into ½ inch cubes
Salt and pepper
Preheat your oven to 400°F and lightly coat a baking sheet with olive oil by using a spritzer or pouring on a small amount (1/2-1 t) and spreading it in a thin layer.
Place the squash cubes on the baking sheet and spritz or drizzle with another half to one tablespoon of olive oil (depending on the size of your squash - you want enough to lightly coat the cubes), sprinkle with kosher salt (about ½ t for every 2 cups of squash) and freshly ground pepper. Toss to coat and spread into a single layer.
Roast for 15 minutes, then gently toss and again spread into a single layer.
Roast for another 10-15 minutes, or until tender.
