I’m a roasted veggies kind of person. Our typical dinner consists of some type of protein and always roasted vegetables. Sweet potatoes are our all time favorite but butternut squash may come in a close second…or third we’re loving broccoli right now too. This garlic roasted butternut squash is so good! I was wishing I had made a double batch and was stealing garlic cloves from Alex’s plate when he wasn’t looking.
I’m not sure if I can really call this a recipe, it’s too easy. Easy is good though. If healthy food is easy and tastes good people are more apt to make the effort to eat healthy. So enjoy this healthy side dish with almost any protein. It’s especially good with this Honey Glazed Prosciutto Wrapped Chicken!
You can also make it even easier by using pre-cubed butternut squash. I’ve found them at Trader Joe’s.
