Whole, unpeeled garlic cloves roast along with butternut squash in this aromatic side dish. Give each guest a couple of garlic cloves, and invite them to extract the mellow roasted pulp over the squash.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450°.

Step 2

Combine all of the ingredients except cooking spray in a large bowl; toss to coat. Arrange in a single layer on a jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 450° for 45 minutes or until tender, stirring after 20 minutes. Discard thyme and bay leaves before serving.

This was great!! The flavor of the herbs really came through. I made sure to separate the thyme leaves from the stems before serving. Make sure the squash is the recommended cube-size, otherwise they may lose their form. I added a few quartered red potatoes and the combination was excellent.

Yum! Making this for Thanksgiving this year. Be sure not to squeeze all of the roasted garlic into the squash, can be a little overpowering, and I'm a garlic lover!

So simple that it's hardly a recipe, but it's very good. The simplicity brings out the flavor of the squash itself, and the roasted garlic is delicious. Served with the wonderful buttermilk-brined pork chops and baby broccoli sauteed in a bit of olive oil.
