Sweet but Savory Butternut Squash

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by jenne

A little bit sweet and a little bit savory. This squash is a great side dish to chicken or pork, but it can also stand all alone as a main course. Recipe from Rachel Ray's October 2008 magazine.

We enjoyed this very much, and it so easy to prepare, I had a smallish butternut, so used the whole thing, and I did omit the raisins because none of us really care for them. Used my own sage, fresh from the garden! Another tasty way to enjoy a popular vegetable! Thanks JB! Made for vegetarian Swap, April 09
