Roasted Winter Squash Recipe

Roasted Winter Squash Recipe
Peeling hard-skinned winter squash, like butternut, for this recipe requires a little time and a sharp, sturdy knife. 

Roasted winter squash is one of Scott Leysath's favorite Thanksgiving sides and oh boy, does his recipe for it go great with turkey

Scott Leysath, host of The Sporting Chef on Sportsman Channel, complements his Thanksgiving turkey with a plate of roasted winter squash. Winter squash makes a great side dish as it has just the right amount of natural sweetness and earthy, savory flavors.
