This recipe is a vegetable dish I created with an Italian twist! I call it Anna's Caramelized Butternut Squash! Caramelized butternut squash sauteed with olive oil, onion, rosemary and red pepper has a delightful taste that melts in your mouth with a slight kick to it! Delish!
It's not easy getting kids to eat everything you make for dinner, but this is one they may try. With teenagers, a husband and a business to run, I am always thinking of simple ways to make dinner dishes that are quick and easy and delicious at the same time. With just a few ingredients, you will have a great side dish that will go with any entree.
Have a great Halloween everyone!
