Maple Roasted Butternut Squash

Maple Roasted Butternut Squash – made with ONLY 3 ingredients plus s + p!

A simple Fall side dish, made with just 3 ingredients (butternut, pure maple syrup and oil) plus s + p!

My aunt LOVES butternut squash and shared this recipe with me. I personally an not a huge fan of sweet food (I prefer my butternut squash savory) but since many of you might enjoy this, I thought I would share. It’s too easy not to!

The hardest thing about making this is peeling and cutting the squash, but the good news is you can buy it pre-cut, so if you want to do that, I say by all means, go for it! I also have an easy tip here on how to peel it yourself!
