Easy Grilled Squash Recipe

This is one of my favorite ways to use butternut squash, which I love not just for its flavor but also because it's full of vitamin A. I usually make this when I am grilling steak or chicken. —Esther Horst, Monterey, Tennessee

"This recipe was super easy to make (except cutting up the squash). I had a very small squash and should have cut the garlic down. Other than that, great idea! It was nice and sweet as well. Thanks!"
