Roasted Butternut Squash and Purple Potatoes Recipe

Roasted butternut squash purple potatoes

I was never really a fan of butternut squash until I realized you can make it in savory dishes. My first real attempt in using butternut squash was my melt in your mouth butternut squash risotto. This is where I realized that there was a whole new world out there, where butternut squash could be used, and liked. I had some little purple potatoes lying around and thought they would make a beautiful combo with my butternut squash.  I added a bunch of garlic, a dash of fresh sage, a pinch of rosemary, and I was on my way to roasted butternut squash and potato delight.  This paired nicely with rice and beans. I combined this with some Belizean dirty rice I had made the day before and baked tofu.  All the flavors worked really well with each other.
