Easy and Yummy Spiced Squash

Recipe by KristenErinM

too easy and tastes great! I baked the squash this morning, mashed it and put it in the fridge until dinner when i baked it again.the cinnamon is a nice complement to the squash, which i usually eat plain.

I just love butternut squash and often roast it this same way - putting it in the oven in a roasting pan with about 2 inches of water (uncovered) and set delay start on my oven so when I walk in from work the house smells heavenly! I love the addition of a little spray butter and cinnamon - gives it a nice flavor! Reviewed for healthy choices ABC game.
