Roasted Winter Squash Cubes

Last week I shared with you some tips on how to peel a winter squash. Today I'm going to share a simple side dish that you can make with those peeled winter squash cubes. This is a simple recipe, but can be adapted to your family's own liking and tastes by changing the seasonings. I love roasted squash. It's simple, healthy, and delicious, and one of my favorite ways to eat squash. A great side dish that can accompany almost any fall or winter meal plan.

I have to be honest and tell you that I haven't always enjoyed eating squash. But I've learned that if you cook it right, it can taste delicious. And this is one of my very most favorite ways to cook it. Something about the roasting process brings out such a wonderful flavor. And the texture is wonderful too. And if you need even more encouragement, read how healthy squash is for you in my previous posts introducing you to Hubbard and Sunshine squash. Learning about how healthy winter squash is, can really motivate you to start including it in your diet.
