Reviews for Honey-Thyme Butternut Squash
"I've made this several times and even those that don't like squash, loved this."
"This recipe is so good! In addition to making it with butternut squash, I've also made it with Heart of Gold and Sweet Dumpling squash. The results were equally delicious!"
"All I changed was adding a little more salt and pepper. This was delicious and SOOOO easy!"
"this was a nice twist to butternut squash. I didn't taste the honey much thought and I would cut back the cream to make it a thicker consistency. All in all good and a keeper."
"an easy to make side dish. i made it for thanksgiving."
