The dish was simple quick to prepare and delicious (to those who complained that squash was too hard to cut I'd recommend investing in a good knife - makes life a lot easier)! I added a little cinnamon to it and it was great. The only thing: there was way too much butter in the recipe! I'll add half of the recommended amount next time. But it's just my personal taste.

I thought this dish had no flavor. I couldn't even eat it. So I added some cinnamon and a drizzle of maple syrup then mashed it all together and it came out great! Read More

Yet another example of "how to make an inherently healthy veggie really really bad for you.." but freakin' GOOD! BF loved it made it using only half a squash (maybe mine was really big as it filled up a whole bread pan?) but everything e3lse the same and the results were excelllent!!! Cudos and I will DEFINATELY make this again! Read More

Great Recipe! We cut our squash into smaller pieces, about 1 inch, which made it cook faster. Also added a little more brown sugar. This is a great alternative to eating the squash mushed, the taste and texture of the squash really comes through, and it's just sweet enough to be everyone's (especially the kiddo's) favorite!

This is great! I have been making my squash this way for years. I cut mine up in about 1" pieces and put it in a microwave dish cover with plastic wrap (leave a small opening to allow for steam) and microwave. It turns out great and it is a lot quicker than the oven. Read More

Delicious! I topped the squash with chopped pecans. I also cooked a bit longer - 40 mins as I like my squash a bit softer. Read More

This is a really easy tasty recipe. The only change I will make next time is to cook it a bit longer. I prefer the squash a little softer. Otherwise excellent recipe. My husband not a big squash fan LOVED it!!! (Always good with a veggie recipe!) Read More

This was a simple tasty recipe for butternut squash. I used a larger squash so I had to more than double the cooking time as well as add extra sugar butter and salt. I baked it until it was soft and easy to mash. Very tasty! Read More

I enjoyed this very much having made one adjustment. I did not keep the foil on the whole time as I wanted the sugar to reduce and carmelize the squash. It was tasty. But next time I think I'll add some cinnamon to the mix. Read More
