Don't fear the butternut squash
You know those corn cob holders? Poke it a few times on each side and microwave it for 5-6 minutes. When you take it out, it's soft enough to easily cut in half. (Trying to cut those things in half without it is like asking to hack off a finger.
Scoop out the seeds and flip it over and just peel the skin off. It's thin and soft at this point so it's able to easily be removed.
Then cut it the opposite direction to make like sized cubes.
Put them in a roasting pan with about a tbsp of olive oil and pie spice to taste and give 'em a toss. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
Enjoy a delicious taste of Fall with half the effort. Because it's already half cooked, you can prep it a day or two ahead and finish it off when you're ready for it.
