Ready to fill your home with the most delicious aromas of fall? There are few vegetable side dishes that my children will happily devour, but this dish is one exception. Roasted Butternut Squash with rosemary, caramelized onion and just a touch of heat and spice will be a family favorite.

Roasted Butternut Squash by Sand and Sisal

If you’ve ever bought a whole butternut squash then you know how hard they are to cut! As a busy mom of four, I don’t have the time or patience to prepare the squash, so I purchase butternut squash that is already peeled and cubed. My local grocer provides 32oz. containers in the produce section.  It’s so worth the little bit of extra cost.
