Yummm, yummmm. The brown sugar and cinnamon really dresses up butternut squash. I drizzed it with honey which made it even better. Thanks for sharing this simple yet wonderful dish, Norelllaural.

Excellent recipe, great flavor. The stated bake time was far too short- I baked mine at 350F for 45 minutes and it was just right. I like the touch of honey I used apprx 1 tsp, cut back on the butter to 2 tsp I only cooked 1 squash and put 1 tsp in each half and basted the squash as it cooked

This was very good and so easy. I also had to cook it for 45 min. Next time I think I will peel and cube the squash and put the other ingredients over. It may be more work, but lots easier to eat. Thanks for posting.
