My neighbor, Sharon, is always cooking up the tastiest dishes. She’s back on the blog serving up a roasted veggie side dish for our readers today!

I adore roasted veggies. They are like candy! My new favorite is butternut squash. Serve with pork tenderloin, steak, salmon or… why not just eat the whole pan like candy or a sleeve of cookies?!?


1 butternut squash

Olive oil

Cayenne pepper or chili powder
Salt and pepper
Peel the butternut squash. Cut in half and scoop out the seeds. Slice it and one half inch pieces.
Place on a cookie sheet drizzle with olive oil sprinkle either cayenne pepper or for the faint-of-heart who don’t like spicy use chili powder salt and pepper.
Bake on 400 for 20 to 30 minutes or until brown.
Even the kids loved this dish!
