STORY BEHIND THE DISH
I love butternut squash. It is a challenging squash to cut so I don't mind spending the extra dollar to buy then pre-cut at Trader Joes. It makes a wonderful side dish and pairs very well with pork, chicken, & turkey.
This is whole30 & paleo approved but the recipe can be modified to your palate. If you like spicy you can add some red pepper flakes to this dish. This is a fabulous side dish & has great flavor with such little ingredients.
