Roasted Butternut Squash


This is actually the first year I've even tried cooking any type of winter squash, and now that I have, where has it been all my life!? It's so simple, delicious and healthy. This is an incredibly simple recipe that didn't require rocket science to come up with, but I wanted to post it for those of you that have never tried butternut squash, go try it!
Ingredients
1 butternut squash, peeled, seeded and chopped into uniform pieces
2 TB low calorie butter
1/3 cup brown sugar (or Splenda sub)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
Directions
Combine squash and butter and toss until butter coats squash evenly. Add sugar, salt and pepper and toss to coat. Arrange evenly on a cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 15-25 minutes, or until fork tender. Remove from oven and immediately toss squash with spatula (otherwise the sugar sticks to the pan and gets really hard). Enjoy, it's as good as candy!
