I like simple great tasting recipes. This is one that takes hardly any time to do and perfect side dish for Turkey day!
I really love butternut squash, I find it naturally sweet. Just adding a little more butter makes it melt in your mouth! Baking in the oven also releases it's natural flavors and enhanced with a little brown sugar added gives this the wow factor!
