And there are few things easier and quicker to put together than a roast dinner. All it takes is a bit of prep before everything goes into the oven for a couple of hours of cooking time, time which you can enjoy as you please.
The appeal of that free time while the meal cooks is a major reason I like to use squash for this meal. You can, of course, substitute any vegetable you'd like. But I like that squash can go into the oven along with everything else. I also love the color it adds to the meal. And, of course, I love how delicious this powerhouse vegetable is.
Once everything is in the oven, the only remaining task to take care of before the roast and accompanying sides are ready to serve is making a nice, colorful, tossed salad. That only takes minutes, so for very little effort, you’ve got a wonderful, satisfying, and balanced meal your family will love.
As if that weren't enough, there’s even more to like about roasts.
