I was doubtful but the flavors were great together. Only drawback was cubing the butternut squash.
I loved this recipe and will make it again for myself or others, OTHER than my other half. I ate the left overs the next day for lunch and it was still wonderful. I get soooo tired of the squash recipes with brown sugar and other sweeteners. This is a wonderful change of pace.
However, I have to disagree with Karen who submitted this recipe. If they don't like cooked squash, they are never going to like cooked squash. I keep trying new recipes because I like it but my other half does NOT. He'll eat it if I cook it, but he will complain the entire time while telling me, You know I ONLY like raw summer squash.
Just learned this week the easy way to peel butternut squash--make several cuts into the whole squash just through the peeling, cook on high in microwave for 5 to 6 minutes, cool till can handle, peels sooo very easily. Can finish cooking afterwards to desired doneness. I wish I had known this years ago.
My husband and I love this dish. I'll be making it often and especially for company. It tastes wonderful and is so pretty.
Just OK. There are plenty of other recipes to try. I probably won't make this one again.
