Step 2 Add the butternut squash, tomatoes, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, and red pepper flakes. Cover the skillet and cook until the butternut squash is tender, about 6-8 minutes. Add a touch of water or broth if anything begins to burn. Depending on the size of the butternut squash, it could take a bit longer. For quick-cooking preparation, make sure to cut it into small pieces.
