Ingredients

    5 cups (3/4-inch) cubed peeled butternut squash (about 2 pounds)
    1 (1 1/2-ounce) slice wheat bread
    4 teaspoons olive oil, divided
    1 scallion, chopped
    1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    Cooking spray
    1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled blue cheese

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 400°.

2. Steam butternut squash, covered, 10 minutes or until tender.

3. Place bread in a food processor, and pulse 12 times or until coarse crumbs measure 1/2 cup. Transfer to a small bowl; add 2 teaspoons oil, and toss with a fork to combine.

4. Heat remaining 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add scallion to pan; saute until tender, stirring occasionally. Transfer the scallion to a large bowl. Add butternut squash, chopped sage, salt, and black pepper to bowl, and toss gently to combine. Spoon squash mixture into an 11 x 7–inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 20 minutes. Sprinkle crumbled blue cheese evenly over squash mixture, and sprinkle evenly with breadcrumb mixture. Bake an additional 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and crumbs are golden brown.

Makes 6 servings.
