Roasted Butternut Squash with Pecans, Dried Cherries, and Blue Cheese

YUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I literally LICKED the bowl tonight.  We made the best meal ever tonight - another Sodahl fav!!!  We made this with Cream Cheese and Pesto Stuffed Chicken  and brown rice.  Everything was SO great!!  I could eat this every day this fall, and never get bored.  So so so so so so good!!

A tip: dried cherries were kinda expensive, so I just bought Craisins -cherry flavored, and those worked perfect!


1 lb butternut squash, cubes
1 red onion, sliced
pinch of dried sage
about 1 T. olive oil
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup dried cherries
1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 400.

Arrange the squash cubes and sliced red onions in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Season with salt, pepper, and sage, drizzle with olive oil. Roast for 15 minutes.

Scatter pecans over the top and roast for another 5 minutes. Remove squash from oven and toss with dried cherries and blue cheese. Adjust seasoning to taste.
