Rosemary Butternut Squash

I absolutely love butternut squash. Pairing it with one of my favorite fresh herbs, like rosemary, makes this a go-to side dish for many meals. Encased by a slightly crisp outside, this soft, buttery squash just melts in your mouth. Prepare this to go alongside lemon garlic chicken, a juicy steak or even toss some in a salad, this is sure to be a winner!
