      Hi Barrie! You may have cut your squash too small, and you may need to calibrate your oven temperature. It’s always a good idea to double check vegetable recipes like this as they roast, just in case yours is cooking faster than expected.

    I have made this recipe like 4 times since finding it a month ago. Absolutely love it. (hate the peeling/cutting park which is why I do a big batch at once and then freeze, or splurge on precut)

    This is my go-to whenever I need to impress a group. I sub pecans in for pine nuts, and have started adding an extra clove of garlic. I usually broil it at the end for a bit of texture, as well. Great recipe!

    Hi. Can this be made ahead and frozen? Would like some side dishes that I can freeze and take on an airplane.

    Hi Tori,
    I’m planning on making this dish ahead & re-heating it right before I serve it. If I do this, can I put the pine nuts in and re-heat them or should I wait until the last minute to add the nuts?
    oh, by the way I made your smoky potato-leek soup & it was delicious!!!!

    • Tori Avey says

      Hi Vivian– you can put the pine nuts in ahead and reheat them, no worries. I’m so happy you liked the potato leek soup!

    Pepitas (roasted pumpkin seeds) are a great sub for any nut allergies! Can usually find at health food or finer grocery stores.

    Help! I bought frozen butternut squash (I know, I know…) and since it comes in very small cubes, I didn’t roast it but put it in the pan with the oil, garlic, sage. and pine nuts. Needless to say, it isn’t as tasty as the roasted one. What can I add? Thank you!

    Hey Tori,
    I am loving this year’s Passover Potluck recipes… this butternut squash is great, and looks a lot like something I make for rosh haShana! And what can i say about the cream puffs? Looking forward to more 😀
    Chag sameach!

    I love the above recipe, but for Passover, could you publish something that is delish, but can be made is advance. Since I will be sitting at the table with our guests, reading the hagaddah, it is tough to leave and prepare a dish such as the butternut squash above. My soup will be on the stove, my brisket warming in the oven along with the mashed potatoes, so I am looking for a veggie dish that can be made ahead and left to be served at room temp. Thanks!

    • Tori Avey says

      Linda, I think that you could easily make this dish earlier in the day, heat it up before the Haggadah, and keep it in a roasting pan or dish covered with foil in a low oven (200 degrees) till ready to serve. You can add 1/2 cup vegetable broth to the bottom of the pan to keep it from drying out. I have a lot of other vegetable side dishes in the Passover Recipe Index, so you might want to check there for other ideas. Here’s the link: http://theshiksa.com/passover-recipe-index/

      Also, keep in mind that Passover is a week-long celebration, so you don’t necessarily have to serve this dish at the Seder… it would make a great weekday dish, too!
