Butternut Squash with Apples

Don’t you just love the soft melt-in-your-mouth comfort of butternut squash?  It’s been one of my favorite vegetables since I was growing up in New England.  So I created this simple recipe to go with pork for Christmas dinner.  The roasted apples give the squash an extra zing of sweetness.  I’m happy to say it was a big hit!  I hope you and your family enjoy it too.
