    Ridiculously easy and delicious. Great on its own, but also perfect to customize flavors, based on other dishes or personal taste. To each his own.  -  22 Feb 2019  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    So easy, nothing needed except the flavor from the squash itself. When my kids see me come home from the grocery store with a butternut squash the immediately ask if I can cook it tonight. Definitely a wonderful side, or if you so choose and you're on your own get a small one and cook it up and eat it all to yourself :-) it's incredibly nutritious  -  18 Jan 2019  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
