- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 pounds butternut squash, halved and seeded
- 3/4 pound Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and cut into eighths, plus more for garnish
- 2 onions, cut into wedges
- 2 3/4 cups quartered shiitake mushroom caps
- 3 cups low-sodium chicken broth
- 1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
- 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted
- 1. Preheat oven to 400°. Spread oil in a 9- x 13-inch baking dish; place squash on half of pan, cut sides down. Arrange apples, onions, and mushrooms in 1 layer on other half of pan. Roast in middle of oven 45 minutes or until tender.
