  • 2 pounds butternut squash peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped thyme
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 pound bacon chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella

  • Preheat your oven to 425°F. In a large ovenproof skillet or baking dish, toss the butternut squash with olive oil, garlic, and thyme. Season with salt and pepper, then scatter the chopped bacon on top.
