    Sherri35's Note:

    I've just recently found that I love winter squash and have been on the lookout for new recipes. This is adapted from a Barefoot Contessa cookbook (you can't go wrong with the Barefoot Contessa). It's a great fall recipe and would be a wonderful side dish at Thanksgiving. Preparation is very simple, just a little time consuming with the peeling and cutting of the squash.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
    2. 2
      Cut off and discard the ends of the squash. Peel the squash, cut them in half lengthwise, and remove the seeds. Cut the squash into 3/4 inch cubes and place them on a baking sheet. Add the melted butter, brown sugar, salt and pepper. Toss all the ingredients together and spread in a single layer. Roast for 30 minutes, or until the squash is very tender. While roasting, turn the squash once to be sure that it cooks evenly. Do not let it brown.
    3. 3
      Transfer the squash and the pan juices to a large mixing bowl, and mix with an electric mixer until smooth. It should have the consistency of mashed potatoes.
    4. 4
      Season to taste and serve hot. If the squash is too thick, thin it with milk, orange juice or water.

      Delicious! Thank you for sharing this recipe, it is a new favorite in our house. It was a little too sweet for my husband so next time I think I'll scale back the brown sugar. I love squash and I'm always looking for new ways to cook it. This recipe is wonderful, lots of flavor and very easy.

      This was delicious! I followed most of the recipe exactly as is, and it wasn't too sweet or salty. It was perfect. And I'm not one who likes overly sweet food, so I was a little worried after reading some of the reviews. I used light brown sugar, not sure if that has anything to do with it. I omitted the half n' half because I didn't have any on hand, and the consistency was still perfect. These are definitely a keeper for my holiday meals from now on. Thank you!
