Recently, I came across the original version of this Crusted Butternut Squash Recipe at Sprouted Kitchen.

And even though it’s the middle of summer, I suddenly was overcome with a desire for this fall recipe. I made just a few tweaks, and was thrilled with how ridiculously delicious this butternut squash recipe was!

The savory, seasoned breadcrumb mixture was the perfect accent to the mild, slightly sweet squash. This made a beautiful Weight Watchers side dish recipe that was not only lovely but absolutely delicious and a fantastic way to get in a healthy veggie serving.

I love the idea of serving it for the fall, but it was so darn good, I don’t think I can wait that long to have it again!
