    Nice easy side dish, simple but tasty. Great as part of a roast chicken dinner or added to a risotto for an additional texture and taste.  -  25 Jul 2016


    Mi have never cooked butternut squash before my family loved it  -  11 Jul 2017


    Easiest way to peel a butternut squash: - Lay on side - Cut into two halves, separating the "large ball" at the bottom from the "tube" at the top. - Cut the bottom from the large ball so you have two parallel flat surfaces. Stand the ball on one flat face. Cut slices of skin off, from top to bottom, following the contour of the ball as you make each cut. - Cut the top from the tube. Stand on one flat end. Cut slices of skin, from top to bottom. - Only after both pieces are peeled - cut each half in half (top to bottom) to expose seeds, which you scrape out and discard.  -  22 Dec 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
