Editor's Note: I wait for pomegranates ALL YEAR LONG. They are probably in my top three favorite foods of all time and this just looks like a wonderful recipe to add to my ever growing list of foods I try to serve at Thanksgiving to get my family converted to a healthier and cleaner way of eating. Butternut squash is full of beta-carotene and when roasted becomes very savory sweet.
