Roasted Butternut Squash

This week I will be paying tribute to my favorite winter squash --butternut! I'm kicking off butternut squash week with this basic roasted butternut squash. We have been receiving a steady supply of butternut squash since the fall and roasting it is one of the easiest ways to prepare it . I like to roast up some squash over the weekend so it is ready to use during the week. It can be made ahead of time and kept in the fridge. You can eat it as is, or add it as a component to other recipes, I have even thrown it in a smoothie! YUM!
