Roasted Butternut Squash with Rosemary & Balsamic

A very satisfying recipe that you can serve for Thanksgiving.



  1. Preheat oven to 400 °F (200 °C).
  2. Toss squash cubes with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and rosemary. Put on cookie sheet or dish large enough to hold it in a single layer.
  3. Roast until squash is very soft and starting to get slightly caramelized.
  4. Note: No one will know how healthy this recipe is but you!

This dish is a TREAT to me! Taste sweet and buttery. Once out of the oven, you're supposed to add another 1taspoon of balsamic and mix it up. I have done this both ways. My husband likes it without the last added teaspoon. I like it both ways. I hope it helps those people who are having the sweet & buttery dish withdrawls!

I absolutely loveeee this and could eat the whole dang squash!! I don't add salt to avoid the extra sodium and the vinegar seems to be plenty enough flavor for me. :) I highly recommend it!! AND it's a low glycemic index food, so GO FOR IT! :)

I cut the serving size in half for Atkins, but this is a great nutritionally dense food. I also added some melted butter when I served it. It is delicious, the herbs make a big difference.
this sounds fabulous! can't wait to try it!!!!!!

Made this tonight and the entire family loved it!! They gave it a big thumbs-up and this never happens. Instead of baking we put it on the grill in foil along side a pork tenderloin. Yummy!!
