Roasting vegetables is an easy way to make a delicious, healthy side for any meal. Try roasted butternut squash with your next dinner.Jump to Recipe
One of the easiest ways to cook vegetables, without losing flavor, is to roast them. We’ve made roasted vegetables and roasted potatoes as sides for a lot of meals. As fall is here, it was time to try some roasted butternut squash.
The butternut squash has a sweet flavor to it, so it paired well with a seasoned steak for dinner. While the boys aren’t fans of cooked vegetables (in any way) they did try the recipe. Tyler said it was ok and Ryan didn’t like it at all. Justin and I ended up eating a lot of it then saved the rest for lunch the next day.
This was the first time we’d bought a large squash like this. Tyler was grocery shopping with Justin and kept saying it reminded him of a big nose. Ryan thought it looked like a hammer. Either way, they thought it was funny so they were willing to give it a taste.

Roasted Butternut Squash Leftovers
Save any leftover roasted butternut squash in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days. To reheat, it would be best heated in the oven or an air fryer or toaster oven. The microwave makes it too soft in my opinion.
