What You'll Need
  • 24 ounces butternut squash
  • 3 ounces onion (chopped)
  • 2 teaspoons garlic
  • 3 ounces button mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon parsley
  • 1/3 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/3 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted chicken broth
  • 1 ounce cheddar cheese
  • 1 ounce mozzarella cheese
  1. Preheat the oven to 400° F.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil and sauté the onions and garlic for 2 minutes. Set the heat to low. Add mushrooms and sauté for 10 minutes.
  3. Add butternut squash and season with the remaining ingredients (except for the cheeses). Let it cook for about 5 minutes.
  4. Tip the cooked squash and mushrooms into a baking dish (rectangular, 6 inches wide and 8 inches long). Add chicken stock. Spread evenly and cover with foil. Bake for about 30 minutes or until the squash is tender.
  5. Once it’s cooked, sprinkle cheese on top and broil for about 1-2 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  6. Take it out of the oven and serve warm. Decorate with parsley on top.
