Step 1

Preheat oven to 375 F.

Step 2

Line a baking sheet pan with parchment and roast the acorn squash 20-30 minutes, depending on size, until it can be easily pierced with a knife.

Step 3

Cool until comfortable to handle; then cut into wedges or slices, scooping out the seeds and pulp in the center.

Increase oven temperature to 425 F. and line the baking sheet pan with a clean piece of parchment. Place the squash pieces on the prepared pan. 

Step 5

In a large bowl toss the sweet potato cubes with the melted butter and C&H Light Brown Sugar. Sprinkle with ½ teaspoon salt; then, turn out onto a clean section of the pan and hold aside. 

Step 6

Use the same bowl to toss the Brussels sprouts and pearl onions in the olive oil and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt; then, turn out onto a final section of the pan.

Step 7

Roast vegetables 20 minutes or until sweet potato pieces are tender but still firm enough to hold their shape.
