squishy sqaush

today while i was working on spinach pie for dinner i realized i should probably have something to go along with it. i would be perfectly happy with just spinach pie for dinner, but there probably wouldnt be any leftovers for me if i didn't make more food! i searched for something to do with this butternut squash that has been living in our kitchen and found this recipe. it was colorful and wonderful! so wonderful that i'm going to post the recipe here for those that are too lazy to go get it (like myself).

garlicky baked butternut squash
  • 2 Tbs minced fresh parsley
  • 2 Tbs olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (i used 4.... or maybe 5)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 3 1/2 pounds butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan
  1. In a large bowl, combine parsley, oil, garlic, salt and pepper. add squash and toss to coat.
  2. Transfer to an ungreased shallow 2 qt. baking dish. bake, uncovered, at 400 degrees F for 50-55 minutes or until squash is just tender.

it really doesn't mention when to add the parmesan. i added freshly grated parmesan right before serving and shoved it back in the oven for a minute. i also sprayed my baking dish with cooking spray because i didnt read the directions. but i'll probably do that again anyway.
