Cut butternut squash in 1/2.
Scoop out the seeds
Peel and dice squash into 2 inch cubes
Peel and slice onions into thick ringlets
core apple and chop into 2 inch cubes
Place squash, onions, apple, into a large bowl.

Add nuts and craisins and toss one final time.

Spread onto 13x 9x 1 cookie sheet and bake in 400* oven for 30 minutes

Serve warm as a side dish.

 This was one of my Kooky ideas or experiments. I'm known for cooking some crazy idea recipes and then not knowing what to call it.  This was one that turned out to be wonderful! It was a hit with even the members of the family who are not known to eat veggies!  This will be appearing on my table again!
