Delicious Butternut Squash

I didn't post much last week because my heart wasn't in it and now that I am willing to post, I've been super busy! Sorry!

I wanted to share an easy recipe that was a HUGE hit at Thanksgiving. In fact, several of us were scraping the dish. It's a baked butternut squash. I found it at Deliciously Thin, where I've gotten several great low-carb recipes lately.

Baked Butternut Squash
  • 1 med butternut squash (3 lb.) peeled and cubed to 1/2 inch pieces
  • 2 garlic cloves chopped
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 2 T minced fresh parsley
  • salt & pepper
  • ½ c grated Parmesan cheese
Put everything except the squash in a box and mix up. Toss in the squash and stir around until sufficiently covered. Bake in a large glass dish at 400 degrees for 50 or until tender. It is SOOOO delicious! I had to bake it at a lower temp due to other things being baked that day, so I kept it in a little longer, but it was still so good!! I plan on making this OFTEN!
