Roasted Squash with Sage Bread Crumbs

From Stones River Market

<p>This recipes comes to use from a recommendation from Yummly and their website.</p> <p>Sage, a member of the mint family, livens up any dish. But remember, too much sage will make food taste bitter or medicinal. This holds truer for dried sage, which tends to sit in the spice rack for years, growing even mustier.</p>
