With Thanksgiving less than a week away, dreams of green bean casserole, sweet potato souffle and pumpkin pie have been dancing in my head. I’m always looking for an unexpected, colorful side dish to add to the table though, and my Honey-Roasted Butternut Squash dish fits the bill. Often pureed for soups and casseroles, butternut squash is a winter squash with a sweet, nutty taste similar to its cousin pumpkin. The hardest part about this recipe is peeling and dicing the squash, which really isn’t hard at all.
Roast the squash at 450 degrees for 30 minutes. Serve it up by adding a little butter, then finish the dish with a sprinkle of kosher salt. My Honey-Roasted Butternut Squash is sure to melt in your mouth and provide a nice pop of color for your plate!
