New England Butternut Squash

If you are a fan of squash, then you will like this recipe. It has a hint of sweetness that is irresistible! While I do love squash with just a dab of butter, this is a real treat. I served it along side BBQ chicken. Delicious!

We love squash, especially sweetened with brown sugar and with marshmallows on top. Will try this with maple syrup. Thanks for sharing!

That looks like a tasty rendition of butternut squash! I've got to remember to use mine. I just stored them in the basement and it's easy to forget that they're there! I think I'll bring up one to use for dinner tonight. Thanks for the recipe. :-)
