Gluten Free Butternut Squash with Sage Quiche

Gluten Free Butternut Squash with Sage Quiche is part of my fall and winter meals.

I love the taste of fall with dishes made from pumpkin, cinnamon, cabbage, dried raisin, but most of all the wonderful butternut squash. To me, it’s as sweet as candy this time of year.

It’s an easy crust to make with all the flavors of fall wrapped into one dish. One of the things I love most about this quiche is the rich flavors that are all mixed together.

Its the perfect lunch of dinner during the winter months. One of the things I usually do is freeze some pieces for us to bring for lunch. It is always great for lunch at work. I usually make two so there is plenty for everyone.
