      Roast, tossing occasionally, until just tender and golden brown, about 30 minutes. Stop cooking squash but keep it warm.

      Delish!! A wonderful blend of flavors and ingredients I wouldn't have thought of putting together. It was easy to make, too. The bleu cheese really makes this recipe. I love butternut squash, am always looking for different things to do with it, and I will be making this one again. Thanks for posting.

      I was expecting this to be good since I love all the ingredients in it, and I wasn't disappointed in the least! My only recommendation would be to not be stingy with the salt here, because salt is what keeps the lemon from overpowering everything else. Definitely a keeper, thanks for posting! Made for PAC Fall 2012
