Butternut Squash

I have been trying to find some new meals to make lately for when its my days to cook and of course I turn to Pinterest for that. I seriously have a million recipes pinned on there from blogs that I see. {I should probably clear them all and start over!} I have been really intrigued by the butternut squash so when I decided to pick one up at the store and then find a recipe for it I knew that was the only way I was going to absolutely make it! So that is what I did. I even baked it the day before in the morning because just like spaghetti squash I figured it would take awhile to cook! Since this veggie is new to me I wanted to share with you the steps to how to bake it and then the recipe I used to make the yummy food!
The first thing you want to do is cut off the top.
Then cut it in half. {It is kind of hard to cut in half so use a sharp knife and don’t cut yourself}
Put both halves with the inside facing down.
Add enough water to cover the bottom of the pan and then add foil over top.
Bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes.
When the time is up scoop out the seeds and then I let it cool down for awhile so that I could cut it in cubes and actually touch the squash without burning myself!

Last night I continued to make the rest of the meal that included apple chicken sausage and quinoa.
You can find the recipe here. It is so good! Everyone went back for seconds! (:

Questions: Do you eat butternut squash? What are other ways you use it? Do you feel like you should clear your pinterest boards and start over?
