This delicious Cranberry & Feta Butternut Squash recipe is super easy to make the perfect side to any meal. It is a fall favorite in our house and I cannot wait until it gets a little chillier in San Diego so I can crank up the oven and bake till my heart’s content!
I buy my squash pre-cubed at Costco. They sell a 2lb package and it is the perfect amount for about 4 servings (if you can share!). I also buy my feta at Costco but I buy my cranberries at Trader Joe’s as they have reasonable size bags and prices. This recipe literally takes less than 5 minutes to prep. I use a mister (click here to view/buy) to spritz the pan and the squash. It ensures that I don’t dump a huge glop of olive oil onto the pan and squash.
