Home Cooked Cuisine: Savory Butternut Squash


An overlooked and often neglected squash, the butternut squash, is the highlight of this recipe. We have to admit, we have been one of the guilty in having never purchased and cooked this squash. Thankfully, there is a first time for everything, and we must declare that we are declaring this squash to be quite delicious, tasty, and surprisingly sweet. The inspiration for this recipe comes from “Cooking Light,” Nov. 2008 edition.

Blessings for a delicious, healthy, and wonderful week,
