Fantastic, it is delicous. I made this and served it with spiral ham
Pretty good. Really easy to make!
In stead of boiling the squash I roasted it, added less salt due to roasting the squash, and added some fresh tyme as well. But still a great recipe.
I made this recipe last week for my family. I had a butternut squash that I got from my local farm (and it was free of charge - can't beat that). At first I as going to use it to make a butternut squash bread that I make on occasion, but decided to look for a different type of recipe. Found this one, made it and the family liked it a lot. The only change I made was to use applesauce instead of the butter. Found this dish to be tasty and healthful.
Instead of cooking the squash in water, I halve it, scoop out seeds, cover each half with waxed paper and microwave until cooked. Much easier! I plan to try this receipe! Love your receipes, etc.
Sweet, earthy and hearty — butternut is a favorite among squash lovers. It holds its shape in stews, gratins and risotto and makes a silky smooth puree for fall and winter baked goods.
