      We had this on our Thanksgiving table. I used the last of my butternut crop to prepare it. Was a nice change fromt he regular sweet potatoes.

      The toasted pecans were so good with the squash and sweet onions. I ended up adding water to the pan to steam the squash after a bit, as it was taking a long time and I didn't want the onions to burn. I think I'll roast the squash in the oven next time and then combine. Great flavors! Thanks, LikeItLoveIt. [Made for I Recommend]

      This was amazing and so easy, the taste was enjoyed by both me and DH. The only thing I did differantly was to use ready cut squash I found at the store, cut the recipe in half (there's only two of us) and added a small amount of freshly graded nutmeg. I'll be making this often, what a great way to get some really healthy vegies in the family.
