1 Butternut Squash, Peeled, halved, seeds removed, cut into small chunks
1 Red Pepper, de-seeded & cut into small chunks

Serve at once. I topped mine with some crumbled danish blue cheese, but you can add what ever takes your fancy. As well as being a healthy meal, it also adds a liitle bit of colour to our dull winter days. Enjoy.
