Butternut Squash with Grapes Haiku: "Interesting dish! Wish that I'd had the pine nuts, followed recipe." What a tasty and unusual approach to butternut squash, those little purple bursting orbs of grapes made this really fun to eat, and I'm glad that it wasn't roasted w/ brown sugar and cinnamon as so many winter squashes are. Didn't have the pine nuts although I can only imagine how wonderful of an addition they would be. Sad to say that the rest of my family didn't share my enthusiasm about this though. They were probably still scared of me from all the swearing I did while cutting peeling and cubing the squash to begin w/. Those suckers are a B! Read More

Followed the recipe to the letter, and I wouldn't change a thing (well, I might add a few more grapes). Of course, the squash caramelizes when roasted, but oh my, those grapes were an incredible partner in this dish. I forgot to put the pine nuts on for the photo, but added them later. The recipe author says they're "optional," but if you have them, by all means include them because they are the absolute perfect garnish on this side dish. Jess2011, seriously LOVED your recipe, and this would be a good addition to the Thanksgiving dinner table. Read More

Loved this recipe! Followed the instructions exactly and used 1 pound of grapes instead of the 1/2 pound the dish called for. It was excellent! Read More

This recipe was a big hit at recent dinner party. The squash really cooks down so consider doubling recipe. Read More

I made this for Thanksgiving and it was a huge hit with even the picky eaters. I used Craisins instead of grapes because I didn t have grapes on hand otherwise followed the recipe. It was delicious and I will be using this recipe again for sure Read More
