Butternut Squash and Carrots

I bought a butternut squash last week because the weather was fall-like and I figured I would get a jump start on making winter foods.  Well this week the weather was in the upper 80s and did not feel like fall, but I was having family over for a cookout so I searched for some butternut squash recipes.  

I found on for roasted butternut squash and carrots and it was so delicious I had to share it! I found it at Fat Girl Trapped in a Skinny Body.  It is really easy and pretty healthy too!

I altered the recipe for the amount of ingredients that I used.

1 Butternut squash, peeled and cubed
5 Large carrots, cut diagonally
1 Head garlic, top cut off, unpeeled
2.5 Tbsp olive oil
2.5 Tbsp maple syrup
3/4 Tsp ground sage
1 Tsp kosher salt
1/2 Tsp black pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Mix all ingredients in a bowl and spread onto a baking pan.

Bake for 35 minutes flipping half way through. 

Remove from oven and enjoy :)  

I will be making this frequently because I love it so much!
