Change up your side dish options with the deliciously flavored roasted butternut squash. It’s easy to make and the combination of sage and maple syrup takes the taste to another level. It is also a vegetarian and vegan friendly dish. While it’s excellent as a side dish, I sometimes make the recipe and use it to make butternut squash soup.

I hope you will try this recipe and enjoy it as much as we do. Happy Cooking!
