Roasted Butternut Squash

Butternut squash are hearty, healthy and delicious.  This vegetable is packed with Vitamin A, Vitamin C, potassium and fiber.  This is a simple recipe I use quite often.  We usually eat the roasted butternut squash, then add the leftovers to some pasta, risotto, or even as a topping on a pizza.  If you have never bought a butternut squash before, look for a long, light orange, pear shaped squash.

Peel the squash.  Cut the squash lengthwise and discard the seeds and pulp area.  Chop the squash into 1 inch cubes.  Arrange squash on a lightly greased baking sheet.  Sprinkle the squash with the garlic powder and basil.  Drizzle the olive oil over the squash.  Bake at 400 for about 20 minutes.  Flip the squash and continue baking until they are soft or crispy.
