Roasted Butternut Squash

Until the last few years, the only squash we ate in my family was zucchini.  Lately, mom and dad have made a number of squash recipes like baked acorn squash and roasted butternut squash.  This dish is particularly tasty.  The secret ingredient is the extra virgin olive oil.

    roasting is one of the best things to do with butternut, I sometimes will add a little cinnamon or paprika both of which add a warming note and help emphasise the natural sweetness of the squash.
