Ingredients
  • 9 cups peeled cubed (1/2-3/4” pieces) butternut squash (from 1 large ~4 ½ lb squash)
  • 1 TB olive oil
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 3/4 tsp finely grated orange zest
  • 3/4 tsp minced fresh sage
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a large bowl, thoroughly toss squash with oil and salt. Coat two large cookie sheets with cooking spray or line with parchment paper. 

  2. Spread squash cubes evenly, in a single layer, on prepared cookie sheets. Be sure to leave room between cubes. Roast squash for 30-40 minutes. 

  3. Stir every 15-20 minutes and switch the sheets’ oven positions (to promote even browning) until squash is tender and well browned. Transfer to a serving bowl, toss gently with sage and orange zest.

Recipe Notes

If you have one, a microplane grater makes quick work of finely grating citrus zest.
