Squash With Grapes And Sage

Red grapes were on sale this week. I love roasting grapes as a topping for bread but tossing it with squash, onions and sage is great as well. Strangely, I don't really enjoy fresh grapes, but baked in a pie or turned into sorbet-I'm there.

The recipe came from Bon Appetite in 1995, but the original recipe called for fresh sage (at $3.00 for a small package that isn't happening here) and two tablespoons of butter. I opted for 4 tablespoons of olive oil and found that was perfect.

You Will Need:

1 medium red onion, cut into eighths

1 butternut squash-seeded and peeled and cut into 1 inch cubes

1 tablespoon dried sage

4 tablespoons olive oil

2 cups red grapes

Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Mix everything in a bowl and then spread on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Stir every fifteen minutes or so. Recipe takes approximately 35 minutes.
