Butternut Squash Fries

Butternut Squash Fries

Butternut Squash Fries
 Serves 4. Recipe is from http://www.weightwatchers.com .
3 sprays olive oil cooking spray
1 lb. butternut squash, peeled, seeded, long “neck” cut into 16 (Ø-inch thick) sticks (see note)
1 tsp. salt or to taste
½ tsp. chili powder or to taste

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. Prepare the squash. (I think the easiest way to peel butternut squash is with a vegetable peeler.)
2. Arrange squash fries on prepared baking sheet and sprinkle with salt and chili powder, liberally coat with cooking spray. Roast, turning once, until desired crispness, about 14 to 18 minutes.
 Note: Start with a large squash. You will end up using about 1 pound of squash and have the “bulb” of the squash left over for later use. Any hard winter squash will work in this recipe. Count 1 Weight Watchers  Point for 4 fries.
