So, it’s hard to resist not grabbing a couple of those squash morsels and popping some in your mouth I know! This Honey Roasted Butternut Squash Recipe is easy and fun to make. I love how colorful it is.

Anyhow, after you bake the squash its time to add those pecans and pop back in the oven for another 2-3 minutes to toast the pecans.

Some of you may not have fresh thyme handy so feel free to use some fresh parsley. If you don’t like feta cheese you can use some other crumbles cheese like blue cheese. I love feta cheese because in this butternut squash recipe it just pairs well. Or maybe it’s just what my taste buds like. You can get creative. Use what you have.

  1. So many ads … hard to read. Is this the future of the internet? What I can see looks good I could skip to just the recipe but like to read the author comments.

    Tried this tonight and absolutely loved it! It’s definitely a new fall favorite that I will be making again and again, and the perfect addition to our Thanksgiving/Christmas meal. Thank you so much for sharing this jewel of a recipe!

    Recipe is delicious. When I tried to view it on my phone to make it a second time so many commercials popped up over the top of the recipe that I couldn’t read it, got frustrated and gave up. I’ve now printed it so I never have to see the ads again.
