Oven cooked potato and butternut squash

When I was cooking the butternut squash with the onions in the oven yesterday ready for the soup, read the recipe here I had to stop OH from eating it before I could make the soup, so I thought as I had half left I would use it for tea.

So I peeled and sliced the other half of the squash and some more onions. no quantities, just enough to suit your needs, added some oil, sprinkled on some salt, some ground black pepper and flaked chilli peppers. Popped into the oven at 180 oC for approx 25 mins.Meanwhile cube and par boil some potatoes.

Took it out of the oven, turned it all over added the par boiled potatoes, some chopped peppers, some pieces of chicken that came of the carcass from the stock for the soup and topped with slices of bacon.

Put back into the oven for another half hour.

Once cooked we served it with green beans. Bob hasn't had green beans before, granddad explained they were like peas but only longer, but he didn't like them, but the rest I was assured was yummy.
