Roasted Kubota Squash

When it’s fall and winter, squash is a great alternative side dish to the over utilized potato. Kubota is a Japanese squash that tastes a little bit like sweet potato and pumpkin. It has an earthy chestnut flavor with a touch of sweetness. Microwaving prior to breaking it down makes the job easier. We then simply slice, roast with spices and herbs, and optionally finish it in butter. This is a great side dish for roasted chicken, or pork!
