I've never had butternut squash before and decided to choose a simple recipe for my first taste. After 30 minutes I added butter and let it melt, then I sprinkled on a little nutmeg, and some brown sugar. It carmelized so beautifully, was perfectly cooked, and tasted delicious.

This was really good, not to mention simple. Since I did use a large butternut squash, I had to roast it for a full 30 minutes. Since some one gave me a small portion of apple butter as a gift, I used that to spread on the squash, and it was so good! Definetely a good combination!

This is the first time I've roasted a butternut squash without using butter & brown sugar. What a huge difference it made. I absolutely loved this plain! I did season lightly with salt & pepper and enjoyed it immensely. Thanks Vel for a great "new" way for me to enjoy squash!

This is a great and easy way to make squash. I usually cook the squash whole for about 30 minutes to soften it to make it easy to peel (can do this a day ahead). Then I cut the squash into cubes, toss in a bowl with olive oil, salt and sage. Roast in a thin layer for about 35-45 minutes until the squash is super tender and starting to brown on the tops. Then enjoy!

This is a good method, but needs a little longer than 30 minutes for the squash to get soft enough for my liking :) I brushed it with olive oil and sprinkled on some cracked pepper, salt, and freshly grated nutmeg.

This was great! I love how butternut squash gets even sweeter when it's roasted. I too only used half of a butternut squash because I used the other half to make Butternut Squash Curry #157098 a couple of days ago. Thanks.

This was a great and easy recipe except maybe peeling the darn squash. It was my first time preparing butternut squash and good grief, I almost gave up. My family loved the flavor. The kids gobbled it up. A keeper for me!

For someone who doesn't usually eat squash, I'm surprised I actually love the butternut squash. Quick and easy to prepare and tasty! I scrape it down to the very last bits!!
