Roasted Butternut Squash Ravioli

Guest recipe and blog by Emily Hill @wonderwhyimfat.

You might be surprised to learn that one of your favorite fall ingredients is considered a fruit and not a vegetable!

According to Wikipedia, butternut squash is botanically a fruit (a berry), but it’s primarily used as a vegetable. Thankfully, it’s readily available at most farmers markets and right on store shelves this time of year, and I love working it into my cooking regimen this time of year. This particular recipe is so easy and fun to make. It’s a great warm comfort meal, and the colors just scream autumn!

Butternut squash is loaded with vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants, and it’s super versatile; it can be roasted, sautéed, toasted, pureed, or mashed. From side dishes, to soups, to desserts, this is one “fruit” you should grab when you see it. It’s not only delicious and very easy to cook with, but it’s soo good for you!

When I cook for my family, I always add in one of my favorite “secrete ingredients”—Just Thrive Probiotic. You can sprinkle it into anything you are eating or drinking as the spore strains don’t even come alive until they reach your intestines. This makes Just Thrive Probiotic the perfect recipe companion and perfect probiotic!

If you want to make this meal even easier, you can buy your butternut squash already chopped or even frozen. You can make this using your favorite ravioli, but to feel my best, I always make sure to look for a brand that’s gluten-free.

Okay, let's get started!
