Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Butternut Squash with Molasses and Poms
Beautiful and delicious! This easy roasted pan of veggies is perfect for a holiday dinner or just family night. It can also be doubled to feed a dozen- simply divide doubled ingredients onto two baking sheets. And, if pomegranates are not in season, you can substitute dried cranberries. They, too, will add the right pop of red!
