New England Butternut Squash is sensational. Really. This delicious five-ingredient recipe will knock your socks off! It’s also a terrific way to use up butternut squash. I made this for a company dinner, but it’s so easy you can make this side dish up anytime for regular family dinners.

One of our neighbors underwent surgery during April. The following week her husband also had to have surgery. I offered to bring her a meal. When she told me they were going to keep her overnight, I threw together another quick meal and provided food for her (or her family) for two days. I whipped up my easy Cavatini dish, Rapid Rise Italian Herb Bread, fruit and Raspberry Swirl Bars for the first night. Everything was pretty simple, plus I pulled the dessert out of the freezer. 🙂

The night she was home, I made up a simple Garlic Parmesan Chicken, Herb Roasted Vegetables and a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Pie to die for. They loved the meal. They loved both meals! Actually both of those meals were really easy. The prep time was minimal for each recipe, so it worked out well for me as well as for them.

My husband and I were out walking our neighborhood late one night and ran into her and her next door neighbor (who we know well because they go to the same church). When I offered to bring an meal, I could tell she didn’t want to put us to the trouble. The friend we know jumped in and said, “You better take the meal. She’s a wonderful cook!” Anyway, they were really happy to have food provided to them during their recovery time.

If you enjoy butternut squash, this is a terrific way to serve it. The squash is seasoned with cinnamon, nutmeg and maple syrup so it’s flavored wonderfully. It pairs well with just about any kind of entree. Plus, it’s a great way to use up butternut squash. Nowadays, you can find butternut squash in the grocery stores all year round, not just in the fall. It’s marvelous in soups, but it’s equally delightful in pasta or served as a side dish. I’ve also served it as an appetizer in nachos!

New England Butternut Squash is also a fantastic recipe to serve during the holidays. No matter when you serve it, it’s so amazing you’ll want it often. 🙂

Recipe Notes

NOTE: My butternut squash weighed 3 ¾ lbs.

NOTE: Because I allowed my butternut squash to cool completely before using in the recipe, I needed to reheat the squash. I put it in a greased 8x12” baking dish and baked in a 350° oven for about 20-30 minutes.

NOTE: This recipe can also be microwaved. See Taste of Home for directions.
