About this recipe: Butternut squash tastes so good when you simply toss it with olive oil and roast it with garlic and lots of freshly ground black pepper.
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
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)
Not sure I'd roast butternut squash any other way after making this basic, non-fussy recipe. Winning recipes almost always begin with fresh ingredients and a little seasoning to enhance and complement. This is a winner. Easy to prepare, quick to roast, easy to serve and eat, pretty on the plate, and delicious. I simply added a little fresh chopped parsley to pretty it up. - 24 Oct 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
