Easy to prepare (well, after you get the darn butternut squash peeled!! ;) ) We enjoyed the flavor also. Thanks!

This is delightful as it is, and we all so appreciate your sharing this recipe. . .an even sweeter variation is to add a quick, complete turn or two of your black pepper grinder, add a pinch of cinnamon amd nutmeg, mixed with maybe a 1/4c+/- of brown sugar and sprinkle the sugar mixed with the spices over the top and bake. . .NUMmmmmyyyyy??
