Roasted Butternut Squash is super good and easy too. Roasting vegetables brings out the depth of flavor. We do it all the time. Trust me, you’re gonna love it.
Roasted butternut squash is a terrific vegetable to accompany any meal.
Have you had Roasted Butternut Squash? Butternut Squash is now in season. I’m happy! It’s time to enjoy it. And what better way to cook it than roasting it?
How to Use Roasted Squash
I use this roasting technique with many different vegetables, but squash is one of my favorites because it gets so caramelized and sweet. This squash can be eaten exactly as it is as a side vegetable, whipped up for a pie filling, made into a soup, or added to other ingredients to spice up a side salad. It’s even wonderful over a nice, Green Salad for a bit of flair.
I love pairing Roasted Butternut Squash with any kind of fish, pork or chicken. Add a side of green beans, and it’s supper. Next week, I’ll show you the Roasted Butternnut Squash Rice Salad I made with this delicious vegetable. You can often get three meals out of one squash. What a deal! I know you’re gonna wanna eat this squash.
What You Need
For this recipe, you will need a a good knife (affiliate link), cutting board, jelly roll pan, a spatula, and measuring spoons. But what you really want is an immersion blender (for when you make the roasted squash into a soup), some terrific dinnerware and some crystal wine glasses, right? And of course an espresso machine so you can enjoy a good cup of coffee!
