Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Butternut Squash
I have always been a fan of butternut squash as well, but mostly in soup. I think all veggies are better roasted. The sweetness of the vegetable really is enhanced in the roasting process. I even roast broccoli now, it is a huge hit. If you kids are fussy vegetable eaters, I dare you to try to roast a few and see if will enjoy them.
