I'm just going to warn you; this is ridiculously good, and at not the lowest carb veggie on the block, it would be very easy to blow your portion size.


  • 1 med butternut squash (3 lb.) peeled and cubed to 1/2 inch pieces
  • 2 garlic cloves chopped
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 2 T minced fresh parsley
  • salt & pepper
  • ½ c grated Parmesan cheese

Put all ingredients in a large bowl except for the squash. Stir.

Add squash and stir to coat.

Put into a large pyrex dish spreading so that it is only 1/2 inch deep in the dish.

Bake at 400* for about 50 minutes or until the squash is tender. Fantastic!
