Very quick, savory way to prepare butternut squash. I made this just as written, just added some extra garlic cloves. I covered the skillet so mine cooked a little quicker and did not stick or dry out at all. The sage and parsley were great, but I think I would have liked a bit more flavor. Next time I was still use the sage and also add some rosemary and thyme while it cooks. Maybe also a drizzle of fresh lemon juice. Thanx for posting this!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 12 lbs butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cut into 1 chunks
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh Italian parsley


  1. In a heavy skillet, heat oil.
  2. Add squash and garlic and toss well to coat with oil.
