What the Veg?: Butternut Squash

Butternut squash sauteed with olive oil and sage
Sautéed butternut squash
I got this recipe last month while training as a nutrition docent for my 4th grader's class.  It is super simple, but oh so delicious.  This recipe calls for sage, but think of the possibilities with thyme...or rosemary....

Try this recipe and I won't have to convince you that delicious veggies can always be prepared quickly and easily with just some fresh herbs and olive oil.

Sauteed Butternut Squash
1 bag of peeled, washed and cut butternut squash (another reason to love Trader Joe's)
1 teaspoon of olive oil
1 bunch of chopped sage

Heat olive oil in a skillet and add butternut squash.  Saute for 10-15 minutes until squash is tender.  Sprinkle with the fresh sage and serve.

Do you have a favorite way to prepare butternut squash?  I'd love to hear it.  Tell me in the comments section below.
