If you’re a foodie diving into the Fall season, and you’re looking for a simple side to have with dinner, or even looking to have something ready to go for the week ahead to have with meals, you should totally try this Herb Roasted Butternut Squash recipe.
I can’t believe how fast summer flew by, but Fall is definitely a season I also look forward to; not being too hot to sleep is one of my favorite things about it, as well as apple cider donuts and seasonal spices and cozy meals and things like that.
I don’t usually cook a lot of squash, but after getting creative and coming up with tasty ways to use it up (like on pizza) it gets easy to go from “I’m not feeling this” to “I’m craving this”.
Herb Roasted Butternut Squash
