Roasted Butternut Squash is so easy to prepare. You can buy the butternut squash already peeled, seeded and cubed. Often I find the pre-cut pieces too large; so I cut them in half. Season the squash with a little garlic, salt, pepper and parsley and you have a colorful addition to your dinner table that is full of flavor.
