Cheesy Bacon Butternut Squash

One of the best things about Summer is all the fresh produce from the gardens. I don’t know what it is but that’s all I want to eat in the Summer months. In the quest to come up with new keto-friendly recipes so we can stay true to our fitness journey, this little gem was discovered. My husbands isn’t a big fan of squash but he agreed to try this dish. It was so good! Again, this is perfect even if you aren’t trying to do keto.

With the squash and bacon combination, it is a full meal! The squash is so buttery and then you take a bite of bacon and it’s over the top! Your family will be taking seconds of this puppy!

Ingredients

2 lb. butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1″ pieces
1/2 butter, cubed
2 cloves garlic, minced
salt, and pepper to taste
1/2 lb. bacon, chopped
1 1/2 c. shredded mozzarella
1/2 c. grated Parmesan
Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish

Directions
