This is an easy veggie side dish that always comes out great!
So do your kids like vegetables? My kids really struggle with vegetables… With five kids, it’s really hard to find something that everyone will tolerate.
At least when we have butternut squash, I know that no one will throw a fit about eating their vegetables. 🙂
This recipe is simple and very flexible. I give measurements for everything below, but I hardly ever measure when I make this recipe. I just pour a bit of oil over the squash, sprinkle some spices, and voila – it comes out great.

You may be able to buy pre-cut squash at the store, which definitely makes this dish easier. But honestly, I prefer cutting the squash myself – I think it has a better flavor that way. But do what works best for you – it will be tasty either way!
