Garlicky Butternut Squash

So, now you know that I like winter squash because they are cheap and good for you... well, here is a new way that I tried today to make it. I think that it turned out really well!!!

Garlicy Baked Butternut Squash Servings: 6
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1-2 tablespoons olive oil (use less for less calories
2 garlic cloves, minced - use a garlic press!
1 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3 1/2 pounds butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese (*) you can sub fat free parm--if you can find it or veggie shreds

In a large bowl, combine the parsley, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Add squash and toss to coat. Transfer to an ungreased shallow 2-qt. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 400 degrees F for 50-55 minutes or until squash is tender. Sprinkle parm on top with about 20-25 minutes remaining.
