A buttery sweet sauce seasoned with cinnamon coats the russets, sweet potatoes, squash and carrots in this delicious side dish. It goes well with beef, pork, poultry, sausage--just about anything.
My husband and I look forward to this dinner. The savory beef tucked inside tender acorn squash halves is a satisfying autumn combination. Plus, it's a lighter entree and very flavorful. — Edna Lee, Greeley, Colorado
I concocted this recipe as a way to use up some vegetables before they went bad. Everyone loved this lively blend of roasted veggies, especially the acorn and butternut squash. It goes particularly well with pork roast, porn loin or pork chops.
“At the end of the growing season, we always have a few acorn squash remaining," says Laurina Jo Tucker of La Marque, Texas. "I usually bake the squash with butter and honey, but decided to try something more savory and I came up with this.”
The beauty of this recipe is that I can substitute any vegetables and still have a terrific side dish. I grow fresh rosemary and use it to season whatever garden bounty I harvest. Since zucchini is abundant almost every year, this recipe puts that to good use.—Emily R Chaney, Blue Hill, Maine
