Recipe Notes

  • Change up the amount of each spice to fit your tastes and how much butternut squash you are cooking.
  • Try other spices like dried thyme, dried oregano, Italian seasoning, Mediterranean seasoning, southwest seasoning or your favorite . You could also just go simple and use only salt and black pepper.
  • I used a vegetable peeler to easily remove the skin from the butternut squash.
  • Store the cooked squash in an airtight container to add to salads and other dishes, or to reheat for leftover night.

Here’s how to make it: 

  1. Put the butternut squash into a mixing bowl. Drizzle it with olive oil. Toss. Sprinkle on the spices and toss again. Put the mixture in a single layer onto an aluminum foil-covered baking sheet.

  2. Bake in a preheated 375-degree F oven for about 20 minutes, or until tender and golden.
