This is a really nice way to prepare and bake Butternuts.

Top Review by Dr. Jenny

This recipe has potential, hence the 3 stars. However, we found it so lemony that we were not able to eat it as it currently is posted. We halved all ingredients in the recipe to accommodate one huge butternut squash. However, in the end all we could taste was lemon. This recipe has nice consistency and has the potential to be something we really like. Next time I will either omit the lemon completely or use only a very small amount.
