icon Have you ever noticed that people either love squash or don’t like it at all?  You hardly ever hear someone say ” its ok”, or “its not bad”.   Comments I usually hear are ones like,   ” I love squash!” or ” YUK!”.   Not too often will you find people who are wishy-washy on the subject.  I am one those people who love it.  That sweet buttery flavor of butternut squash is one I look forward to every Thanksgiving.  In fact,  I am always trying to convince my husband how much he is missing out by not eating this wonderful fruit ( that’s right, it’s a fruit).  This recipe was my attempt at getting him to like butternut squash.

Did it work? No, I am sorry to say.  But for all you butternut squash lovers out there,  this one is for you!

This recipe is a quick, simple side dish that is perfect for your Thanksgiving feast.  Colorful and full of that festive flavor we all crave during the holiday season.  So good, I am sitting here eating it for breakfast!! Enjoy.
