If you want to take it up a delicious notch, or have it more appealing to younger taste buds, add green apples (or other firm cooking apples). Treat them the same way you did the squash (yes, including the garlic) except keep in a separate bowl until it’s time to add them to the baking sheet. Because the apples will take less time to cook, add the apple mixture to the butternut squash as it nears end of roasting time. Soft: around 10 minutes. Firmer textures: closer to five minutes before end of roasting time.
ENJOY! … you might even want to pass this recipe on to Grandma
