I really liked this. The curry/butter sauce was just right with the squash. Thanks for posting. Nick's Mom

These were quite good. I replaced the butter with olive oil (same fat but less cholesterol), and reduced it to about 2 tablespoons. Also added a bit (1/2 teaspoon maybe) of garam masala. Really liked the way the spices contrasted with the natural sweetness of the squash. These would be a great way to get some veggies on the menu at a party dominated by finger foods. I think next time I might include sweet onions and red peppers to add a little more dimension and color to the dish. Thanks Sharon.

I liked this one and thought the curry powder worked well on butternut squash. I used Femmes' Revenge Caribbean Curry Mix Femmes' Revenge Caribbean Curry Mix I also didn't bother with threading on skewers. I served right out of the oven. Thanks Sharon!!!
