Roasted Brussel Sprouts and Butternut Squash

One of my favorite things about the fall is all the glorious seasonal fruits and veggies, two of my all-time favorites are brussels and butternut squash. Both of these have a nuttiness to them, brussels on the savory side and butternut squash on the sweet side. I love pairing these together for a holiday side or even for your weeknight dinner. There is a lot of room for creativity with sheet pan veggies because you can season them how you wish. For this recipe I kept it simple, a little EVOO, sea salt, pepper blend (Lawry’s Seasoned Pepper, my fav), and garlic powder. Simply place them on a sheet pan and bake until tender, or until brussels are a bit charred on the edges… love me some charred brussel leaves!
