So if you’re looking for a healthy weeknight meal that is paleo and gluten-free? 

Well then you are going to love this Salmon and Butternut Squash.

To pull this dish together, you will simply start by cooking the butternut squash.

I used a pre cut squash, however you can always use a whole one and cut it up yourself.

Once the squash has been baked, you will want to mash it with a potato masher.

Don’t forget to add some butter to the mashed squash along with salt too, this really enhanced the dish.
