There is nothing to this dish...simply trim the stems and ends, toss with oil, and roast...you can also use asparagus as a delicious alternative

This roasted zucchini recipe with squash is one of our favorite sides. This recipe is healthy and easy to make. Tastes good hot or cold and reheats well in the microwave.

If you love brussel sprouts (or even if you don't!) you'll love them prepared using this technique! I saw this on "Take Home Chef." The brussel sprouts turn out firm and, by caramilizing them, they have a very unique flavour.

This is a recipe from Ina Garten listed on Food Network, which I've altered slightly. I never liked brussel sprouts until I tried this.

Great recipe for a healthy but not always yummy food. I add lots of black pepper and a little grated parmesan cheese if I need a little extra calcium. Can be refridgerated and used as a snack or a side for up to week after cooking. PREP TIME CUT BY AT LEAST 20-25 MINUTES IF USE FROZEN SPROUTS, but fresh tastes better!

Acorn Squash with Brown Sugar
Very Good 4.5/5

This is the way my mother makes it and we love it! You can use Butternut squash instead of acorn squash. I also use unsalted butter instead of Smart Balance from time to time.
