Recipe by Bergy
Butternut or acorn squash are great for this recipe. I searched Zaar for a similar recipe but could not find one so decided to post this one. This is a tasty and attractive way to serve squash. Especially lovely on your holiday table. If you wish peel the squash and cut it into bite size pieces, place all the ingredients into a casserole dish, mix well, cover casserole & bake at 375 for apprx 1 hour
