Ingredients
  

  • 2 medium butternut squash 4 to 5 pounds total
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup fresh pomegranite seeds

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Cut off and discard the ends of each butternut squash. Peel the squash, cut them in half lengthwise, and remove the seeds.
  • Cut the squash into 1 ¼ to 1 ½-inch cubes and place them on a baking sheet.
  • Add the melted butter, brown sugar, salt, and pepper. With clean hands, toss all the ingredients together and spread in a single layer on the baking sheet.
  • Roast for 45 to 55 minutes, until the squash is tender and the glaze begins to caramelize.
  • While roasting, turn the squash a few times with a spatula, to be sure it browns evenly. Taste for seasonings. Top with fresh pomegranate seeds and serve hot.
