Roasted Butternut Squash with Spinach is a great Fall dish! You can also use pumpkin instead of the butternut squash or a combo of the two. I always serve this dish for Thanksgiving, but it can certainly be eaten at other times of the year. You can cube the squash a day or two ahead of time, put in a zip lock bag, and store in the refrigerator until ready to use. overnight.

This dish is elegant enough to serve at a dinner party and easy enough to make for a weeknight meal.

Butternut squash is full of antioxidants and vitamins including vitamin C, vitamin E, and beta-carotene.

Antioxidants help prevent or slow cellular damage and reduce inflammation, which may reduce your risk of several chronic diseases.

Besides being a great source of calcium, spinach is also jam packed with antioxidants and fiber and vitamins.
