Here's a "recipe" for making easy butternut squash. I say that because squash, like many foods, doesn't really need a recipe for preparation at all. I just love squash this time of year, when it can be hard to find other produce in the store that's in decent shape. Squash also is high in carotenoids, which give butternut squash that deep orange color and its protective health benefits.
How to select a good squash, might you ask? Here's a guide. The best squash I've ever eaten came straight off a farm in the Pacific Northwest, so if you have the luxury of buying your squash locally you'll often get better quality and flavor.
