Garlicky Baked Butternut Squash

    This was very good and easy. My husband liked it too. I added the parmesan cheese at the beginning since the instructions don't say.

    This was SO good. My husband and I both loved it. Wasnt sure what to do with the parm cheese because the instructions dont say when to add it. So I just put all the indredients (including the cheese) and the squash in a ziploc and shook it to coat the squash. Sprayed a cookie sheet with non-stick spray and put the coated squash on it. Worked out great! Flipped the squash half through cooking.

    I started with frozen, partially thawed cubes of squash. Afer adding all but the cheese I baked it for 20 minutes, and then added parmesan and baked for 10 minutes longer. It turned out great! Using less squash like I did (4 c) but keeping the same amounts of everything else worked just fine, but gave it more of a garlicky kick, which I didn't mind a bit, since I'm a big garlic fan, but next time I would go with 6 cups of squash.
