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.

It's been quite a while since I made this and I can't believe I didn't rate it right away. This is a great way to prepare butternut squash! Thanks =)

I too was looking for an alternative to baked squash and turning on the oven. Everyone loved it. The only change I did was to toast the pecans in a skillet as it is just to hot this summer to think about using the oven. Loved your recipe!

Delicious! I was looking for something different to do with a butternut squash, AS THE REST OF DINNER WAS COOKING (!) and found this recipe. My family loved it! Definitely adding it to our repertoire.

This is different and quite good, although I didn't think it was outstanding. Still, I will serve this again, if only because it isn't sweet like a good many winter squash recipes. I put the squash in the microwave for a few minutes to soften it up some. This makes it easier to peel and cut. Be sure, if you do this, to make some vent holes in the squash; otherwise it may explode! Thanks for sharing.

This is really good. Different form what most people will bring, and tasty. The reheating on medium did not seem to make a difference, just skip that part and add peacans after you finish the low heat part. I cut the squash the night before. You'll need a good, sharp knife to cut butternut squash.
