Brussels sprouts are a funny looking veggie…. have you seen how they grow?  Large stalks are dotted with miniature “heads” until they are full grown and consuming the entire stalk.  Some stores and farmer’s markets have started to sell them that way too!   It’s a great conversation starter with your family and friends while preparing this dish.

We halve each brussels sprout and also cube up a whole butternut squash, along with a red onion (which is actually purple) to create a feast for the eyes.  Talk about a colorful recipe!
