This is my dad’s recipe, [hey dad!] he made it the other night for dinner and I could not stop eating it. I am not that big of a squash person, but I think this recipe might have converted me. Squash is so in now, (right?) so grab your butternut squash and let’s get roastin. Remember, this is a home cook recipe so we don’t get all exact with the measurements.
1 Butternut Squash, skin peeled, sliced and diced into bite-sized pieces
Salt + Pepper
Let’s get Roastin’
Preheat your oven to 375F.
Take your diced squash and place it in a zip-lock bag. Or if you prefer, place it on a pan lined with aluminum foil.
Drizzle over, or pour into the bag, some olive oil, enough to coat the squash.
Then sprinkle about a TBSP of both cinnamon + allspice + ginger.
If you’re using the bag method, or just on the lined pan, mix everything together well until it is all coated. Then finish off with salt + pepper.
Place in the oven for about 40 min or until soft to the bite.
Now you have the perfect roasted butternut squash that you just cannot stop eating!
My grandma would make this Macaroni salad for any family get together. We lost my grandma a few years ago, but when I make this recipe it makes me think of her. I’ve never tasted a macaroni salad that tastes like this one! This recipe can make a lot if you need it to for a party, or you can make a smaller serving as well. It’s one of my favorite family recipes and I hope you all like it as well!
Marzetti Cole Slaw Dressing or Mayo
Spanish Green Olives, sliced
Green Onions, diced
Hard Boiled Eggs, diced
Salt + Pepper
For this recipe the ingredients aren’t exact, it usually depends on how big of a serving you are making. So while making this, add in how much feels right.
Let’s Get Cooking
Start off by cooking the macaroni per the boxes instructions.
While the macaroni is cooking, prep the rest of the ingredients. Dice the hard-boiled eggs, dice the celery and green onion, and slice the green olives.
Once the macaroni is finished cooking, rinse and let it cool.
Place the macaroni salad into a large bowl. Start with about 1 cup of Marzetti Cole Slaw dressing, or mayo. As the day goes on you may need to add in more dressing. Combine the dressing with the macaroni, making sure everything is covered.
Add in green onions + olives + celery + hard-boiled egg+ paprika + salt + pepper.
Mix well to combine.
And guess what, thats it! The recipe is complete. I hope you love this recipe as much as I do, it’s one of those meals that just brings me happiness.
