Reviews for New England Butternut Squash
"This came out great. Did add salt and pepper, plus I baked in the oven, instead of using the micowave."
"I have made this recipe many times, actually, but I don't put in the maple syrup (makes it too sweet for me). I will occasionally put in some brown sugar with the cinnamon and nutmeg, along with some salt and black pepper (all to taste)."
"This is a great recipe. It's very easy to make and tasty, too!!!"
"Very Good.Used mixer after i mashed. Make sure its very soft when cooked."
