I'm planning to roast butternut squash and parsnips; would fresh dill go well with this?

My own thoughts would also be more likely to go in the direction of thyme or rosemary, as I think of dill as a little delicate for roasted winter squash and parsnips. But if you like those flavors, go ahead. But one caveat--while Id maybe roast the vegetables with thyme and rosemary, I'd add the dill at the end so that it doesn't burn.

Dill and butternut squash/parsnips don't really inhabit the same seasons. The flavor of dill won't hold up in the roasting, either. Save the dill for something that likes dill (peas, cucumbers.......). Winter savory is also nice, in addition to the above suggestions.

Also sage is nice. Lots of recipes with those ingredients in the last contest

As others have said, rosemary seems a better choice. It has a sharp piney-ness that I think complements these sweet winter vegetables better. I think of dill with springy salad-like ingredients + maybe yogurt or sour cream.
