- 7 pounds winter squash, such as butternut—peeled, halved, seeded and cut into 1-inch cubes
- 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
- 6 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 tablespoons chopped sage
- 2 tablespoons chopped thyme
- Freshly ground pepper
How to make this recipe
Preheat the oven to 350°. In a large bowl, toss the squash cubes with the olive oil, garlic, sage and thyme. Season with salt and pepper and toss again. Spread the squash in 2 large rectangular baking dishes about 1 1/2 inches deep. Bake in the upper third of the oven for about 1 1/2 hours, until the squash is tender and browned around the edges. Let rest for about 10 minutes before serving.
