What, that can’t be butternut squash?

I am always looking for recipes to share that are clean and simple to prepare (did that rhyme?).  I have cooked sweet potatoes this way many times, but this is a new twist and a kick!  All you need is butternut squash. You can even buy it pre cubed in the grocery store to save a step. Give it a try.

    • Great suggestion too Laurie. I like a little cinnamon sprinkled on top to give it a little nutrient boost too. Cinnamon is great for many reasons, memory booster, metabolism support, and it dresses it up.
