Maria's Sweet Butternut Squash

  • 2 medium size butternut squash
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon  dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
Peel butternut squash and remove the seeds. Cut your squash into 1 to 2 inch cubes, and place them into a medium size bowl, and drizzle your olive oil over the cubes  and mix well so they are evenly covered with the oil.  Mix your brown sugar and salt and pepper together, and then evenly spread over your squash mixing it well. Pour your prepared squash onto a baking sheet or baking ban that has been sprayed with pam, and arrange single layered.  Roast you Butternut Squash for 45-50 minutes or until your squash is tender and you notice that the sugar glaze becomes caramelized in color and view.  Make sure to turn while cooking to ensure that your squash is evenly caramelized and browning.  Serve warm Preheat your oven to 450 degrees
