Roasted Butternut Squash

I was going to say save this recipe of Roasted Butternut Squash for your Thanksgiving Dinner but I changed my mind. Make it now, as in immediately because it is really DELICIOUS! If you have fresh thyme then that’s great but if you don’t, dried thyme would do just fine. A perfect cozy side dish this Fall and well, the upcoming holidays.

I served the Roasted Butternut Squash as a side dish to Crockpot Southern Shredded Pork BBQ along with steamed green beans and rice. YUM-O!
