0 Recipe | "Cinnamon Roasted Butternut Squash with Cranberries, Pears and Pecans" by Sue Ready

"This cubed butternut squash side dish bursts with a sweet cinnamon flavor. It can be served with any main meal. The baking time may be adjusted depending on thickness of the butternut squash cubes. Pecans can be eliminated and the taste will not be compromised. Dried cranberries add a pop of color and taste. The aroma of this dish is amazing as well as taste. Optional peeled and diced pears." - Sue
