This Recipe Reminds Me of Thanksgiving, but Good Anytime!

 

 

 

 

INGREDIENTS
 
2 lbs. butternut squash, peeled and cut into cubes  (about 6 cups)
2 T extra virgin olive oil
1 T + 1 tsp. best quality balsamic vinegar
1 tsp. very finely chopped fresh or frozen rosemary, or slightly less dried rosemary (be sure it’s especially finely chopped if you use dried rosemary)
sea salt to taste
fresh ground black pepper to taste
 
DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 400 F. Toss squash cubes with olive oil, 1 T balsamic vinegar, and rosemary. Put on cookie sheet or dish large enough to hold it in a single layer. Roast until squash is very soft and starting to get slightly carmelized, about 40 minutes.Remove from oven, put squash in bowl, and toss with additional 1 tsp. balsamic vinegar, sea salt, and pepper. You can mash slightly or keep chunky. Serve hot.
 
This is also excellent made ahead and reheated. For a holiday like Thanksgiving where there are lots of demands on the oven, it could be cooked early in the day and kept warm in a crockpot while other things bake.
