"This recipe is a mid-week meal dream. It takes about 10 minutes to prep and then the oven does all the work. Serve it with oven-baked chicken breasts or pork chops, or keep it super healthy and serve with high-protein quinoa and a pile of sautéed greens. Make enough for leftovers because my Roasted Butternut Squash is an energy-packed mid-afternoon snack, and it makes a tasty substitute for hash browns come Sunday breakfast. Yum! :)"

Roast butternut is a veg that is very popular with my family and this is a very nice basic recipe. I love the addition of brown sugar, which always caramelizes beautifully, and the garlic adds a wonderful zzshooooosh to the butternut. Of course this recipe would work well with pumpkin too. We did not have enough butternut for everyone so I added some cut up carrots and it was really good. Definitely worth making again.
