Still thinking about which easy and delicious appetizer to contribute to your holiday parties this season? I’ve got you covered! This simple recipe for roasted butternut squash, prosciutto, and arugula bruschetta is incredibly flavorful and it’s the perfect addition to any menu.
I’ve made this recipe a few times recently when we’ve had friends over for dinner and it’s been a hit every time. I especially love making this dish when entertaining because I can roast the butternut squash ahead of time and it’s ready to go when I want to throw this appetizer together. I am a sucker for anything that I can make ahead! A day or so before, roast the butternut squash with a sliced shallot, and once it’s tender and golden brown, mash it in a bowl with some lemon, salt, pepper and red chili flakes. Once you assemble the brushetta, the combination of the concentrated and caramelized butternut squash is so deliciously balanced with the prosciutto, arugula, and a healthy squeeze of lemon juice.
