butternut squash and caramelized onion pita

  • 1 med butternut squash
  • 2 med onions
  • 1-1.5 c crumbled feta
  • salt
  • oregano
  • cayenne

Peel and cube butternut squash and put on a baking sheet.  drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt.  Roast in 400 deg oven about 40 min…until some just begin to brown (stir them around half way through roasting time).  Meanwhile chop onions and caramelize in skillet with a little butter and olive oil and salt.

Prepare phyllo.

After squash is roasted, place in bowl and stir with about a 1/2 tsp of oregano (more if its not pungent) and 1/4 tsp of cayenne.  Stir to slightly break up squash cubes.

To fill pita, place squash, then caramelized onion, then sprinkle feta on top.  (not too much feta…it shouldn’t dominate). Finish the phyllo and score the top to vent.  bake like any pita ~1hr.
