"Butternut squash is a staple in my house during the fall months. In this dish, the squash is roasted with fresh rosemary, garlic, and olive oil. Makes an outstanding side dish with pork, fish, and chicken."

Had this with our lunch today – delicious, as I suspected. I only had dried rosemary on hand, which I ground into a powder in a mortar before adding; that distributed the flavor evenly throughout the dish. Everything was spread out in one layer on a baking sheet, so it was ready in just half an hour. The edges of the squash cubes caramelize slightly, which really brings out the sweetness in this otherwise savory, earthy dish.
Meh. It was okay. It lacked... zing. And I'm not talking about zing as in spicy hot - just something that made my taste buds pop. I think I'll keep looking for another good squash recipe.
I think this recipe was very good . I cooked it along with my roasted chicken on a side dish and it was ready in about 35 mins ,Will make it again.
despite swearing like a sailor while i was peeling the squash, i really loved this! I followed the recipe and it was great---thank you!
Easy and excellent flavor. After peeling the squash I microwaved it whole for a few minutes to make it easier to cut into cubes. Also used dried rosemary and flavor was excellent. This recipe will be used often.
This will be a go to recipe for me from now on! We absolutely loved it! I added a bit more garlic and didn't have fresh Rosemary on hand, so used Penzey's dried rosemary. I also omitted the salt. The flavors blended very well. Worth at least 5 stars if not more! Thanks Krislic84 for submitting!
Used cubed fresh butternut squash I purchased at the store. This was an excellent recipe to use. We loved it. I looked at other recipes so the second time I made it and saw that an addition of an onion also brings out the flavor. I added a chopped onion the second time I made it and the flavor is delightful. The onions and garlic caramelize and make the roasted butternut squash flavor even better. I followed the recipe exactly with the exception of dried instead of fresh rosemary. The second time I made it I did use about triple the amount of butternut squash so I had to cook it for close to 1-1/2 hrs. at 400 degrees.
