Roasted Butternut Squash

This is the perfect side dish and so simple!  I have to be honest, until these past 2 months I’d never even tasted butternut squash.  I kept seeing people post pictures and recipes of butternut squash soup so I became interested in giving it a try.  I did make one butternut squash soup with shredded chicken but it was really bland.  Hoping to spice that recipe up and post it this coming week.  In the meantime, enjoy this delicious and simple side dish!  I am a HUGE fan of butternut squash after tasting these buggers!
