This recipe that is very time consuming as far as peeling the butternut squash. If you know your not going to be busy one weekend, I would highly suggest prepping everything one day before hand. My husband loves butternut squash & has asked me to make different meals with it. This dish is very yummy and perfect as a comfort dish because of its earthy undertones.
