Roasted Butternut Squash is delicious enough to eat on its own as a side, or can be used as a starting point for recipes  or salads. It’s so easy!

If you’ve never had simply roasted butternut squash cubes before, prepare to be amazed by how delicious it can be.

With only squash, oil, and a little salt and pepper, it doesn’t seem like it could possibly be that good, but when you combine the hot dry heat of a good roast in the oven with lots of surface area on the squash, you get a ton of delicious caramelization.

And that’s exactly why even though it’s a little more work to cut cubes,it’s better than roasting a butternut squash whole.

Many grocery stores also sell pre-cut butternut squash, and that takes away most of the work if you’d rather not mess with it.
