Butternut squash is reported to have very high amounts of vitamin A which is supposed to be good for you. I always think about people saying “eat your carrots, they are good for your vision.” They said that because of the vitamin A in carrots, maybe they should have included butternut squash in that claim also. I’m not sure what all the vitamins do for you, I just know they are delicious and versatile.

Peel and dice the butternut squash and place it in a large ovenproof dish with the garlic. Pour over olive oil, and season with thyme. Mix well. Place in the oven and roast at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.
Remove it from the oven, mix in olives and tomatoes.
Place it back in the oven and roast until the squash is soft, about another 15 minutes.
