Roasted Pumpkin Bites

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by - Carla -

I was introduced to these at a party and was pleasently surprised at how good they were - a nice mixture of sweet pumpkin, tangy Balsamic and hot chili powder. This recipe comes out of a local supermarket magazine here in Holland. I think it's a perfect appetizer for Halloween or Thanksgiving

Very tasty and easy to make. I made this with a mix of butternut and acorn squash, rather than pumpkin, and it turned out very well. The only changes I would make next time are 1) I would use a little less oil, as it was slightly greasy, and 2) I will cut the squash pieces bigger than a 1/2 inch. Thanks for posting this; it's a great autumn recipe!
