Easy Roast: Winter Squash

by Stoves and Bros


I've said it once and I'll say it again- roasting is the easiest way to cook something for yourself. You put it in the oven and chill until your timer goes off.

Winter Squash is beautiful and looks very sophisticated even though it's a low maintenance side dish.
