Roasted Fall Vegetables

1 butternut squash, peeled, seeded and chopped into pieces 1/2" or smaller
2-3 yukon gold potatoes, peeled and chopped into pieces 1/2" or smaller
1 large onion, cut into 1/2" pieces
olive oil
pure maple syrup
dash of sage
salt & pepper

1. Preheat oven to 450. Place squash, potatoes and onion in a large bowl. Toss with olive oil, syrup, sage, salt and pepper.

2. Turn into a glass baking dish (9x13). Bake uncovered for 45 minutes or until vegetables are lightly browned and tender, stirring occasionally.

- merged recipes from Claire's Corner Copia, Better Homes and Gardens and Betty Crocker.

This is Mary's and my favorite dish to make in the fall. Last fall we made it like 10 times. The best part was when Esther came along and was like, "yuk," and then had some and wanted seconds. It is really good served along with cranberries. YUMMM

Brian and I just bought butternut squash and didn't know how to cook it. If only I checked out your blog sooner. Doh! We ended up making a Butternut Squash Bread Pudding.Luckily it turned out pretty good!

EM, just saw your post on my blog for the Switchfoot song. Matt and I saw the lead singer, John...? I forget his name right now (ARG), play solo at LeStats, a local music venue down in San Diego. It was pretty cool. It's always interesting to see the actual person behind the voice. We really enjoyed his music.

I going to try this tomorrow. Any protein (aka: meat) you would recommend with it? Wookies need meat.

By the way, it's really awesome to see someone posting recipes. What a great idea!

For wookies, I would recommend some nice turkey. I like to eat this with cranberries too, so it feels like a nice thanksgiving dinner. :)

I served it with cranberry slow cooker pork and though the pork was a bit overdone :( it still went well with this as a side.

I don't even know what butternut squash looks like. But I bet I'd like this.
