Roasting Butternut Squash

We have been talking about roasting vegetables this month the bring out the sweet flavors. Roasted vegetables make an excellent side dish and they are are so easy to make. For this roasted butternut squash recipe, I used precut butternut squash chunks from Trader Joes. Buying the precut butternut squash saved me time and it was relatively inexpensive at $2.99. If you have a whole butternut squash, you could easily use that too!
