Roasted Butternut Squash with Sun Dried Tomatoes

Butternut squash is a type of winter squash that is orange in color, similar to pumpkin, and has a sweet nutty flavor. It's not something I've ever made before. In fact, I don't even remember eating it growing up. The first time I had it was when my mother made Butternut Squash Soup a few years ago and I loved it. This year, I decided to try to make the squash myself and wanted to use some of my favorite flavors like garlic, sun dried tomatoes and fresh rosemary, and roasting this squash seemed like the best plan.



This Roasted Butternut Squash with Sun Dried Tomatoes is a 'must-try' this season. The aromatic flavors wafting through my kitchen as they were roasting were making my mouth water before I even tasted it. Besides, just look how gorgeous the color is. This would certainly dress up your holiday table.
~Enjoy!
