Home Cookin' Butternut Squash with Sage and Parm

Looking for something different to do with butternut squash?  Give this recipe a shot.  Pre-heat to 400.
  • Start with a standard 20oz. package of butternut squash (or peel and cut your own)
  • 1/2 cup of heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup finely grated parm
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of white pepper
  • 3-4 fresh sage leaves chopped
 Add the cream, chopped sage, salt, and pepper to to the squash and cover with foil.  Bake for 1/2 hour.
 After 1/2 an hour remove, mix in 1/2 the parm, then sprinkle the rest over the top.  Put it back in the oven for another 20-30 minutes until it's nice and crispy brown.  Remove from the heat and let it sit for a couiple of minutes...the cream will firm up.
And this is the finished product...first time I tried it and thought it was very tasty.   Good flavors, nice textures and colors.  A perfect side dish for 4 that doesn't require a whole lot of prep/attention.
If you try it let me know how you liked it!
