Roasted Butternut Squash Ingredients
One 3-pound butternut squash-peeled, seeded and cut into 1-inch cubes
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
12 sage leaves or 3 T dried crushed sage
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

Instructions
Preheat the oven to 425°

In a large bowl, toss the butternut squash with the olive oil and sage and season with salt and pepper.

Spread the squash on a baking sheet in a single layer and roast in the oven for about 40 minutes, until tender and lightly browned, tossing once half-way through.

Transfer to a bowl and serve.

Serves 4

1 large delicata squash
1/2 red onion, sliced
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

Preheat oven to 425 degrees and line an insulated baking sheet with aluminum foil.

Wash the squash and slice in half vertically and scoop out the seeds with an ice cream scoop. Slice into 1/4-inch sections.

Toss the squash with half of the onions, and full amounts of the oil, vinegar, salt and pepper making sure that there is just enough oil to coat. Place the squash in a single-layer on the prepared baking sheets and roast for about 30 mins, turning them over halfway through. The squash should be fully cooked and lightly browned on each side.

Arrange arugula on a plate. Add remaining sliced onions and additional sprinkle salt, pepper, and balsamic to taste. Top with hot squash.
