NOTES
ROASTING YOUR BUTTERNUT SQUASH: Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Cut your butternut
squash in half, scrape out the seeds and discard. Place them cut-side-up on a lined baking
sheet. Drizzle with a little olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast in the preheated
oven until squash is fork- tender and lightly browned, 50 to 60 minutes. Let cool, scoop out the
pulp, and then mash it up for your recipe!
TIP: If you roast your butternut squash ahead of time, you can refrigerate it until ready to use.
Bring it to room temperature again before using in this recipe.
