I saw this recipe here and remembered I had some frozen, uncooked butternut squash.  I made a couple changes (omitted the oil, for one), and it turned out great!  The girls and I are eating it with our fingers as I post this.

I also think the same seasoning would be great on sweet potatoes or red potatoes.

3 c. cubed butternut squash
2 T. balsamic vinegar
1 t. smoked paprika
1 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. onion powder
1/4 t. pepper

  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • Toss all ingredients in a medium bowl.
  • Spray a cookie sheet and spread squash in single layer.
  • Bake at 375 for 20 minutes.  Turn squash and bake for another 20-30 minutes, until desired crispiness.

I didn't have the smoked paprika, so I didn't end up making this recipe, but on the same website there is another recipe for roasted butternut squash with Moroccan spices that I tried since I had all of the ingredients. The first time I made it, it tasted good but I cooked it too long (5o minutes). The second time I made it, I used sweet potatoes instead and cooked it 40 minutes in the toaster oven on 450 degrees. It was awesome! I made it during lunch time for dinner, and it was almost gone by dinner time. Here is the link to this recipe:
