I ate this for dinner with a side of bean salad and I was one happy lady. I loved how this dish came out. The garlic paired with the sweetness of the squash was a perfect combination.
Butternut squash is packed with Vitamin A (the beta-carotene gives the orange color) which is crucial for healthy immune system and vision health. It is also loaded with powerful antioxidants B vitamins and minerals as well. This squash is also high in fiber and low in calorie. That should be reason enough to try it 🙂
