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
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!
