How to Make Basic Roasted Butternut Squash

Once you know how to make basic roasted butternut squash, you can spice it up almost any way you want┐sprinkle it with rosemary and lemon zest, toss in some caramelized shallots, or sprinkle with toasted pine nuts.

Directions
1. 
Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 475 degrees F. Line a heavy-duty rimmed baking sheet with parchment. In a medium bowl, toss the rutabaga with enough of the olive oil to coat generously, the salt, and a few grinds of pepper.
2. 
Turn the rutabaga out onto the baking sheet and arrange the pieces so that they are evenly spaced and lying on a cut side. If the pieces cover the baking sheet sparsely, arrange them toward the edges of the baking sheet for the best browning. Roast the rutabaga until browned on bottom, 13 to 15 minutes. Flip and continue to roast until tender, 5 to 10 minutes.
3. 
Return the rutabaga to the bowl in which you tossed it with the oil, or put it in a clean serving bowl. If the rutabaga seems a bit dry, drizzle it with a little oil. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and lemon juice, if using.
