Maple Squash with Gorgonzola

I'm trying to get Matt and I out of our potatoes as a side dish rut, especially when we are having something like roast chicken. We always forget how much we love the orange vegetables, squash and sweet potatoes.
Maple Squash with Gorgonzola
This side dish was inspired by a salad we saw in the deli case at our local grocery store. It is super simple to make with very few ingredients. But oh, do those ingredients pack a punch, sweet, spicy and salty with that special gorgonzola funk.

Looking for a different side for Thanksgiving, this one would be perfect. You could have the squash all prepared in the oil and maple syrup ahead of time and just roast it while the turkey is resting. I also think this preparation would be great with sweet potatoes instead of squash.

Maple Squash with Gorgonzola

10 oz butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1/2" cubes
olive oil
1 T maple syrup
1 t cayenne
crumbled gorgonzola

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Put the squash in a small roasting pan. Add enough olive oil to just coat them. Stir in the syrup and cayenne. Roast for 30 - 40 minutes until the squash is browned and soft.

Serve topped with the gorgonzola.

2 Servings.
