I found this great recipe on the package of my fresh cut butternut squash. It looked yummy so I had to try it. The flavor of the roasted squash and apples with the crunch of the pecans is fantastic. This is a great way to get your family members to eat their veges. Enjoy.

Sweet treat of a side. We really enjoyed the pecans being mixed in with the roasted squash. Made with out adding the two tablespoons of water and am glad I left the water out. This was so sweet that next time may cut the butter and honey each by a tablespoon each. Thanks for the post.

Carol thank you for sharing a wonderful Fall recipe! I did not weigh my squash and now wish I had as dh and I cleaned out the dish and wonder if I really had in the amount you suggested. We are big veggie people though. I must have cut my pieces too big b/c it did take longer than a total cooking time of 30 minutes more like 40 minutes. Next time I would reduce the butter and honey by one tablespoon. Made for the Apple Events.

This was wonderful with our BBQ! I made a few substitutions. My daughter cannot eat dairy, so I used olive oil in place of butter. I used a package of Truvia instead of honey since we don't eat sugar products, so I didn't have honey. I had some chopped mixed nuts with which I topped it at the end of the baking time. I also didn'tt have an apple, but I thought that was a good idea, so I put in a diced pear for the last 10 minutes of ttl. 40 min. roasting time. Great! My grocery store sold the squash cubes, so it was a last sec idea!
