I bought my first butternut squash of the season. Last fall and winter I bought one at least every other week. I chop them up, roast them and eat it throughout the week. I got a little excited and bought the biggest one I could find…it’s been a week of butternut squash all day everrrry day, so I tried to get a little creative incorporating it into my meals.
Enjoyed it the first night with some Dijon crusted salmon and sautéed kale that I found at the farmers market over the weekend. The salmon was AMAZING, a must try recipe.
The second way I used it was sautéed with the leftover kale, a simply seasoned butter sauce put over some butternut squash ravioli. Butternut squash everyything, seems to be a one person trend over here.
I thought these noodles were so cute, I had to get them.
Third and final way I used it is in my all time favorite salad. This salad is the reason I became so obsessed with butternut squash in the first place. I’ll be sure to share the details soon!
I hope this post brings some inspiration to your meals!

Enjoy as you wish!
Here’s a good step by step on prepping a butternut squash from the kitchn. I do it this way except I use a knife to peel the squash instead of a peeler.
