Notes

Tips for roasting butternut squash:

Spread the squash and apples onto a large sheet pan.
Leave plenty of room for the chunks to roast. Crowding the pan or adding too much oil will cause the squash to steam - not get the nice browning that gives so much flavor.
 
TIP: Top with a drizzle of honey or fresh chopped thyme, rosemary or sage for extra flavor.
