Ingredients

Are you making this? 
1 medium Butternut squash*; cubed
2 medium Onions; cut into wedges 1" wide - about 2 cups
3 tablespoons Canola oil
2 teaspoons Salt
1/2 teaspoon Ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon sage; Dried, rubbed
1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper; freshly ground
1/2 cup Dried cranberries
1/4 cup Walnuts; chopped

Original recipe makes 4

Servings  

Preparation

?Preheat the oven to 400F

*I?ve found the rind on butternut squash is tough and difficult to deal with so I usually use two bags of Trader Joe?s peeled and cubed butternut squash instead of a whole squash.

If you are using the whole squash, peel the squash - a sturdy vegetable peeler works best. Scoop out and discard the seeds. Cut the squash into 1 inch cubes and place in a medium mixing bowl.

Add the onions, canola oil, salt, nutmeg, sage and pepper. Mix the vegetables and spices until well coated. Place the squash mixture in a shallow, pyrex baking pan and roast until the vegetables are tender and golden brown, about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. The squash should be firm, not mushy.

Remove the pan from the oven. Add the cranberries and chopped walnuts. Toss lightly to blend.

I just made this dish and it tastes sooo yummy! I accidentally mixed the cranberries and walnuts in it before cooking so it all cooked together but it still came out really good! It's super easy to make and really tastes great

Just made it for a dinner party tonight. Was a HUGE hit. Great recipe. Prep time was mostly preparing squash, so it would be much faster if you buy pre-peeled/cubed. Otherwise, roasting (for me only about 30 min), then 2 minutes to assemble.
