I really enjoyed this! Next time I will cut my squash in bigger pieces, or decrease the cooking time. I'll also decrease the amount of salt, although my bacon could have contributed to the salt content. This is a very nice butternut squash side dish that really doesn't take long to prepare, and is very colorful and tastey! Thanks for sharing.
