Roasted Butternut Squash with Feta

I meant to make muffins. I’d never tried savory muffins, so I thought, “Oh, boy, adventure.” Also, I’m not sure that I’ve ever had butternut squash, and I most certainly have never personally cooked with it. Sadly (deliciously), these butternut squashes did not make it to muffin form.

You see, the first step of this muffin-making process was to roast the chopped butternut squash. (For those astute readers, yes, I had to chop the butternut squash then season them first. Before roasting them. But first step in the general sense…. Does that count?)

Okay. So several steps into process, the original recipe requires you to roast butternut squash. When I took them out of the oven, they sizzled and smelled. Oh, how they smelled! So wonderful. So butternut squashy. I cut out the muffin part, served it as a side dish, and I am VERY happy to bring you the results.

Roasted Butternut Squash with Feta
Inspired by 101 Cookbooks

2 medium sized butternut squash, chopped into 1/2 inch cubes
Pepper and salt, to taste
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 c feta
2 t ground mustard
1 1/2 t parsley

Preheat oven to 405 degrees F. Chop butternut squash into cubes, place onto cookie sheet. Drizzle extra virgin olive oil over squash cubes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.

After 15- 20 minutes of roasting, remove from oven and place onto serving dish. Think to yourself, “Hm, I probably should’ve cut those smaller.”

Top with feta, parsley, and ground mustard.

Enjoy!!! Then, think to yourself, “Hm… I should’ve saved some for others to try instead of eating it all myself.”

Update:: I’ve got it. The perfect solution. You can just tell your loved ones that you wanted to practice this recipe before you forced them to try it. Then, you make a fresh batch just for them and try not to eat all of that. Eh?!! Eh?
