1 small butternut squash (about 1 pound), peeled and seeded

½ pound parsnips, peeled

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

¼ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon fresh ground pepper


Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

2. Cut butternut squash, sweet potato, baking potato, carrots and parsnip into 1- inch pieces.

3. Place all cut vegetables in a single layer on a baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil over vegetables and sprinkle with salt and pepper over top.  Toss well.

4. Bake for about 30 minutes, turning once with a spatula, until vegetables are tender.

5. Season with more salt and pepper, if desired.

6. Serve hot.

Makes 6 servings


Food Fact

Parsnips have a sweet, nutty flavor and creamy texture when cooked.  They look like white carrots.  Available all year round, parsnips are at their peak in fall and winter.  When buying, look for firm, smooth, medium-size parsnips without cracks.  Large, older ones have a much stronger flavor than younger ones.  Some have a woody core that should be removed before cooking.


Shopping Tip

Many supermarkets now carry peeled and cubed butternut squash in small packages.  They are usually available in 8 oz bags.  If you want to save the prep time, buy these.  You will need 2 packages.
