This is an easy week-night recipe. *If you're bbqing on a weekend throw the butternut squash on the grill. Slice in half, then into quarters (without peeling), spray each slice with olive oil and put on the grill. Grill each side for about 4 minutes. Put aside and allow to cool while you eat your bbq. Use a spoon to gently pull the squash meat away from the skin. It adds great depth to this recipe. *To toast the seeds wash them in a colander, spread out in your toaster oven baking tray, sprinkle on some Lawry's season salt, and bake at 350 degrees F for approx 10 minutes.
