  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. In a large baking dish, toss the diced butternut squash with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Roast for about 30-35 minutes or until tender and slightly caramelized.
