This dish requires little attention on your part past the chopping of the squash. Once you stick it in the oven, you have to visit it only once before it is done! My mum is a gifted cook who makes even the simplest of recipes epicurean. She texted me this recipe when I asked her for a simple way to use a butternut squash. DELICIOUS!
