Roasted Butternut Squash with Onions, Spinach, and Craisins®

Roasted Butternut Squash with Onions, Spinach, and Craisins®

Marcia 4

"A delicious deviation from the typical squash preparation, this recipe has kind of a nutty flavor with or without the nuts. Good as-is, but of course each person can salt and pepper their own serving to taste. The leftovers are good served as a cold salad if you don't like the cooked spinach that results from re-heating. Almonds and walnuts can be used in addition to or instead of the pecans."

Very good! I had some leftover butternut squash, so they weren't exactly the size specified, so they cooked a bit faster, but that was fine. I also added a bit of garlic powder, salt and pepper,...

The red onions were burnt in the oven at 450 degrees and for so long. The flavor was very plain. I had to add dressing or maple syrup to give any kick. It was just okay for me.
