Roasted Apple and Butternut Squash

December 4, 2009 - Written by Diana

Here’s a way the whole family will enjoy butternut squash and apple.  I used a splash of orange, plus grated the rind and ginger.  This was fabulous, fantastic, divine, delicious and good tasting.  Butternut squash is so delicious and nutritious for you and such a great autumn food to serve.  Apples go well with it, and the orange gives it sweetness without adding sugar.

I told my son to tell me it tasted wonderful, and after he tasted, he agreed.  If you have kids that balk at squash, this is the way to serve it.

Oh, this dish is heavenly good.  I think I’m bringing it to my mom for Christmas.

Roasted Apple and Butternut Squash
 
Ingredients
  • 1 butternut squash, peeled, seeded and diced
  • 3 or 4 apples, peeled, cored and diced
  • 1 orange peel - zested
  • 1 tbs grated ginger
  • Olive oil for pan
  • Nutmeg
Instructions
  1. I parboiled the squash so that the apple wouldn’t get mushy from baking too long. Oil a baking dish. Drain the butternut squash, and toss with apple in baking dish. Grate ginger, then zest orange and toss that with the butternut squash and apple. I squeezed a little of the orange over top of the dish too and then lightly sprinkled nutmeg over top. Bake at 350 until soft, but not mushy, with a little bit of firmness.
