|FOOD|butternut squash 'Caesar' salad

Trying to healthy up our weekday meals a bit so The Hubs is having Ceasar salad quite regularly, I know it sounds a bit weird but I quite like to eat the same meal as him but a veggie form so I came up with this salad and it's absolutely delicious! 

Ingredients (serves 1):
1/2 small butternut squash
Olive oil
1 little gem lettuce
Handful of croutons (make your own with leftover bread!)
1 tbsp pinenuts
Vegetarian Ceasar dressing
Vegetarian Parmesan cheese

1. Peel the butternut squash and cut the top part into thick sticks (cut up the rest and cook for another meal!) drizzle with olive oil and roast for 20-30 minutes.

2. In a dry frying pan gently toast the pinenuts until lightly browned. 

3. Cut up the lettuce and place on a dish,  place the roasted butternut on top, sprinkle with the croutons. Add some Parmesan shavings and drizzle over some Caesar dressing, finally top with pinenuts. 

And enjoy! X
