Roasted Butternut Squash & Squash/Peach Smoothie recipe

Roasted Butternut Squash
(dedicated to Jennifer - I remember!!)

1lb Butternut Squash (its really hard to peel and cut so many of the supermkts have it already cut up for you.  Take the easy route. Its worth it.
1TBSP Pumpkin Pie spice (allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg)
1/4 tsp Lite Salt (optional)
Pam butter flavored cooking spray
1pkt splenda (optional - you really don't need any)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a tin pan with Pam and arrange squash in the pan.  Sprinkle with seasonings.  Spray with Pam.  Bake 45 mins to 1 hour, until tender. 

Exchanges:  1/2 cup Carb A

Enjoy as a side with chicken or pork. 

Leftover butternut squash meshes flavorfully with frozen peaches in the blender for a delicious smoothie that is reminiscent of peach ice cream, if soft frozen with a 1/8tsp vanilla and a pkt of splenda.
