Roasting vegetables brings out the sweetness and flavor of an otherwise blah vegetable.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

We look forward to the fall because butternut squash begins appearing on grocery store shelves. This roasted butternut squash recipe is very tender. It's prepared with very simple ingredients. The combination of seasonings adds a savory element to the easy and healthy side dish.
