Last month I realized I'd never be able to spotlight all my favorite recipes by featuring them one at a time, so I decided that once in a while I'd do Friday Favorites, where I spotlight five favorite recipes around a common theme. One of my most-loved fall foods is winter squash, and I think roasting is the perfect way to cook winter squash, so today I'm sharing five recipes for roasted butternut or buttercup squash. You can use other types of squash as well, but if you like winter squash do try one of recipes, starting with the Agave and Balsamic Glazed and Roasted Buttercup Squash above, which I loved when I tested the recipe.
Three of these favorites use butternut squash, which is delicious but has a very hard skin. You may want to read How to Peel and Cut Up a Butternut Squash, and then try this recipe for Roasted Butternut Squash with Lime and Rosemary.
For an easy dinner that is perfect this time of year, I'd highly recommend this recipe for Roasted Winter Squash and Sausage with Herbs. I used a piece of Jarrahdale squash I got from a neighbor, but you could also use other types.
If you'd like a slightly different take on butternut squash, try this Roasted Butternut Squash with Moroccan Spices. You'll have some extra spice mix left to try on other vegetables.
Finally, this Roasted Butternut Squash with Lemon, Thyme, and Parmesan has a great combination of flavors.
All these favorite recipes for roasted winter squash will be added to the Recipe Favorites page in the recipe index. You can find more winter squash ideas in the Vegetables section of the index.
