Roasted Butternut Squash with Rosemary and Balsamic Vinegar
- 2 lbs. butternut squash cubes (about 6 cups)
- 2 T extra virgin olive oil
- 1 T + 1 tsp. best quality balsamic vinegar (example: Fini brand)
- 1 tsp. very finely chopped fresh or frozen rosemary, or slightly less dried rosemary (be sure it’s especially finely chopped if you use dried rosemary)
- sea salt to taste
- fresh ground black pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 F. Toss squash cubes with olive oil, 1 T balsamic vinegar, and rosemary. Put on cookie sheet or dish large enough to hold it in a single layer. Roast until squash is very soft and starting to get slightly caramelized, about 40 minutes.
Remove from oven, put squash in bowl, and toss with additional 1 tsp. balsamic vinegar, sea salt, and pepper. You can mash slightly, I kept mine rather chunky. Serve hot.
This is also excellent made ahead and reheated. For a holiday like Thanksgiving where there are lots of demands on the oven, it could be cooked early in the day and kept warm in a crockpot while other things bake.
