Herbed Pork with Roasted Veggies 


Fall is such an amazing season to experiment with thyme, rosemary and garlic and root vegetables! I love this recipe because you only need about a 1/2 the butternut squash and you can freeze the other half for a future recipe or soup! I always make this in a foil pan for easy clean up! This recipe is easy peasy and the pork is tender and delicious!

Enjoy!

Ingredients 

1 pound of butternut squash peeled and cut into about 2 inch chunks

2 parsnips cut into chunks

2 carrots cut into chunks

About a pound of baby potatoes halved (or russet peeled and quartered)

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 tablespoon fresh rosemary

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 1/2 teaspoon Salt

3/4 teaspoon pepper

Method:

  1. Toss veggies in a roasting pan with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Combine 1 tablespoon of fresh chopped rosemary (dried will also work) and 2 large cloves of garlic minced and 3/4 tsp of salt and 1 teaspoon black pepper and rub onto the roast.
  3.  Place roast in roaster with the veggies and cook at 450 degrees for about 45 minutes-1 hour or until a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
  4. Allow meat to rest 5-10 minutes before slicing
