    Great timing – I have a butternut squash I need to use and was trying to think of something different to do with it! Thanks.

    This sounds delicious. I usually roast it for soup, but I’ve never eaten it as a side/veggie.

    I passed your link along to a blogger friend who has a garden full of these delicious squashes and, like little Jack Horner, she didn’t know what to do!

    Dang it! I forgot the cheese. I bought some squash today because I was going to try this, but I don’t have Parmesan! Hmm . . . .

    Sounds delicious! And I like the idea of buying it cubed – it is a real pain to peel and cut up. Will try this…
