lb. butternut squash, diced
tsp. olive oil
TBSP. butter, divided
tsp. kosher salt
tsp. freshly ground black pepper
shallot, finely chopped
TBSP. honey

Place roasting pan in oven and preheat oven to 450 degrees. Stir together olive oil and 1 TBSP butter in preheated pan. Add the potatoes, carrots, parsnip, squash, salt and pepper; toss to coat. Bake for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, melt remaining 2 TBSP. butter in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add shallot; sauté 1 minute. Then add honey and chicken broth bringing to a boil and stirring occasionally.  Reduce heat to medium, cook 5 minutes or until mixture is syrupy.

Drizzle over the vegetable mixture and cook for 10-20 minutes more, until the vegetables are just tender. Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle with thyme.
