Butternut squash with sage

This is made courtesy of a recipe from The cooking fiend on the "smells like home" blog.

I had bought a butternut squash in the supermarket with the thought of trying something new with it. I rarely have butternut squash and when i do it's usually roasted so I came across this recipe and decided to try it. Very tasty and simple. I had it instead of potatoes or another sidedish with my chicken pie and will do it again!

Butternut squash with sage

Serves 2-3


2 tbsp butter
2 lbs butternut squash, pelled, seeded, and cut into 3/4 inch pieces (I cut them into 1/2 inch pieces)
1 tbsp chopped fresh sage or 1/2 tsp dried
2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped (the original recipe doesn't call for this but it was a nice addition)
1/4 cup water

1. Melt the butter in a pan over medium heat.
2. Add the squash and garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, tossing frequently, until the squash is lightly browned, 5-6 minutes.
3. Add the water and reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover and cook until the squash is fork-tender, 8-10 minutes.
4. Toss with sage and serve

I unfortunately forgot to stir at one point and ende dup with slightly burnt squash which was still very very delicious, in fact it didn't taste burnt at all!!!! Give it a go!

  1. great to hear you liked the butternut squash with sage! it looks like you did a wonderful job with it, even if a little crispy. :) i really think the flavors are enhanced the longer you cook it.
