Sweet, Simple and Easy! The cinnamon and butter flavor is outstanding. A great vegetable side dish which goes well with any meal. Another way to get your vitamins and also have a colorful plate.

I have this in oven now, along with honey baked chicken drummies. My husband and I just "snuck" a taste. Only thing I did different was sprinkle a little nutmeg (my favorite spice) with the cinnamon. It is absolutely delicious. I have only had butternut boiled and mashed, but went to local orchard/farm store this past weekend and wanted to try something different. We will have chicken and butternut with homemade cranberry sauce. It smells like thanksgiving in here right now. Yummmm!!!!!
