Butternut Squash

Preheat oven to 400°.Peel butternut squash. Using a large spoon, hollow out seeded center. Cut into a large dice (½” to 1” cubes - just be fairly consistent for even cooking). In a bowl, toss squash with olive oil cinnamon, cumin, and minced garlic. Transfer to a casserole baking dish. Bake until soft, about 40 minutes.
