Savory Rosemary Roasted Butternut Squash With Crispy Bacon

This variation of roasted butternut squash is so savory + delicious! With rosemary, bacon, pine nuts and parmesan cheese it's a clear winner!
Every year my husband and I host an annual Christmas party for our friends. It has become one of the things we look forward to most of all at Christmas! Kelly and I both love to cook, we whip up super fancy smancy food that we normally don’t make at other times. It’s kinda of our chance to show off our culinary chops so to speak. Our friends greatly appreciate a night out, without kiddos. And they know when they come they’ll eat good! A couple years back we made this super delicious Crunchy Rosemary Potato recipe from Tyler Florence. The recipe as is is pretty delicious, but of course it is… it’s a Tyler Florence recipe.
So when I had the opportunity to try Butter Flavored Olive Oil I instantly thought about how good it would be paired with this recipe! I am known for my tweaking! That being said, I made a couple other little changes to make it a little bit more figure friendly. Not to brag, but my tweaks are pretty amazing! So flippin’ good! The butter flavored olive oil is AWESOME… it added a great depth to the flavors and a buttery richness to the robust flavors of the garlic, rosemary and bacon. Man my mouth is watering while I’m typing this ( I might have to go reheat a plate of some right now) but I digress… It’s soo good you don’t need to wait for a fancy smancy party make it for a tuesday night and your family will thank you!
