This side dish tastes more like dessert than a vegetable and goes well with chicken, steak or salmon! Butternut squash satisfies like a more carb heavy side dish, however is not as calorie dense.

This Maple Roasted Butternut Squash Recipe is a go-to in my house as most of the ingredients are usually on hand. Eat up.
