Butternut Squash

Caramelized Butternut Squash

I love this stuff.  It is one of the few vegetables I could eat as an entire meal.  This recipe comes from Ina Garten the Barefoot Contessa but I have reduced the amount of butter she uses.

medium butternut squashes (or 1 large)
stick butter
brown sugar
1 tsp
1 tsp
black pepper

Preheat the oven to 400.  Cut the ends off the butternut and peel the skin off with a vegetable peeler.  Cut in half lengthwise.  Using a spoon, remove the seeds and pulp.  Cut the squash into 1" pieces.  Transfer to a large mixing bowl.  Melt the butter, add the brown sugar, salt, and stir to dissolve the sugar.  Pour the butter mixture over the squash and mix well.  Transfer to a baking sheet.  Spread out evenly in a single layer.  Bake for 50 minutes. Serve.
