Honey Roasted Butternut Squash

***This has been modified since it's original posting. I can't believe I left out the kosher salt! The salt gives it that salty/sweet thing that is SO good! Sorry about that folks!***

We have been trying to shed a few holiday pounds at my house, and consequently, have been eating lots of veggies. I finally bought some pre-chopped butternut squash at Costco after eying it for quite some time, and then I decided to roast it.

There was a recipe on the package that inspired this simple one. I have made it a few times since, and let me tell you, if you love it as much as we do, we just might have to set up a Honey Roasted Butternut Squash addicts anonymous group. I'm tellin' ya, it's good!

Honey Roasted Butternut Squash
1 lb chopped, cubed butternut squash pieces
1 Tablespoon melted butter
1 1/2 Tablespoons Honey
Kosher Salt

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Melt butter for a few seconds in a small bowl in the microwave, and then add the honey. Stir until combined. Place squash cubes on a large shallow baking pan or cookie sheet and drizzle with honey butter mixture. Lightly sprinkle with kosher salt (to taste). Dig in with your hands and gently toss squash until all pieces are coated. Roast in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until squash is golden brown. Serve hot!
