Lemon-Dill Tilapia and Butternut Squash Saute

I was pleased with these two things and how they went together--what a healthy meal! My sweet Riley ate ever bit of his tilapia and veggies--gotta love it!

Lemon-Dill Tilapia

4 fresh tilapia fillets (5 oz each)
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
2 lemons, sliced
1/4 cup shredded carrot
2 T fresh dill
2 T fresh parsley
2 T butter
Parchment paper or foil

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Sprinkle fillets with salt and pepper.

Cut parchment paper into 4 13x9 rectangles. Place 3 lemon slices crosswise in center of each parchment piece. Top with 1 fillet. Repeat with remaining lemon slices, fillets, and parchment paper rectangles. Sprinkle fillets evenly lwith carrot, dill, and parsley. Top each fillet with 1/2 T butter.

Fold 1 side of parchment paper over fillets; tuck excess parchment under fillets, pressing folds to form a crease.

Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until fish flakes with fork. Serve immediately.

2 small butternut squash, peeled, cut into 1/2 inch pieces (6 cups)
