Honey Roasted Butternut Squash and Pears

I made a quick trip to Costco and saw a huge container of pre-cut Butternut Squash in the produce area; I could never turn that down.  Since I usually only cook for myself, I knew I was going to have a lot of left-overs, but my roomies love to help me out 🙂  There was a recipe provided on the container, but I tweaked it a little and it turned out WONDERFUL!

The original recipe called for an apple instead of a pear and I used roasted squash seeds and walnuts instead of the pecans recommended. 


  • 2- 8×8 baking sheets
  • 1 lb cubed butternut squash
  • 1 pear (cubed)
  • 2 tablespoons of butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons of local honey
  • 1/4 cup of walnut halves/pieces
  • 1/8 cup of roasted squash seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon saigon cinnamon (reg. cinnamon is fine too)
  •  1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Spray bottom of baking dishes with pam or cooking spray
  3. Arrange cubed squash and pear in the baking dishes with ~2 tablespoons of water in the pans
  4. Roast, uncovered, for ~20 minutes or until mostly cooked through (meanwhile- mix the rest of the ingredients in a small bowl)
  5. Take the butternut squash/pears out of the oven and evenly divide the honey mixture among the two baking dishes, stir lightly to coat
  6. Roast, uncovered, for another 8-10 minutes.  Remove and serve! 

So delicious…
