I came up with this on a week night when I just wasn't up to making anything fancy. Luckily, it worked out wonderfully. Most supermarkets sell butternut squash pre-cubed which makes this even easier.

Keeper! Thanks for posting MCK. I cut back on the oil and put quite a bit of course sea salt on. Yummy! Mine was done in 30 minutes.

I was looking for a simple recipe for baked butternut squash and this fit the bill. I did cut back on the oil but the flavor was still very good. Next time I might try sprinkling some cinnamon or nutmeg on before serving. I used the leftovers to make Roasted Butternut Squash Soup.
