    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 450°F.
    2. 2
      Peel squash, cut in half lengthwise and remove the seeds. Cut the squash into 1" to 1 1/2" cubes (large and uniform is best), and place in a bowl. Drizzle olive oil over the chunks and toss them around with your hands to evenly distribute the oil.
    3. 3
      Mix brown sugar, (if using) salt and pepper together and sprinkle it over the squash pieces. Toss around again to evenly distribute the seasoning. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and spread squash in a single layer.
    4. 4
      Roast for 40-45 minutes, until the squash is tender and the glaze begins to caramelize, turning a few times to ensure even browning. Serve.

      I have made this twice now. The first time I used the Splenda brown sugar and was not to pleased. At first bite it is delish, but it has an after tsste which ruins the next bite!. So no review until I made with regular brown sugar. Being concerned with the amt. of sugar I can consume, I replaced half with the Splenda. That did the trick! Now, I can truly encourage everybody to try this exceptional dish. I had made it to go with some baked chicken but ended up just filling up on this and steamed greenbeans. Yummy meal!

      I enjoyed this very much! I overbought butternut squash for Thanksgiving, so I really needed something good and healthy and simple. I substituted agave for the brown sugar. Just drizzled it on. Also had a better time peeling the squash by poking holes in it with a fork and microwaving the whole squash for 60 seconds. Thank you for sharing this!
