    Loved this! Myself and a family member hadn't had butternut squash until I cooked this and it's a keeper! I cut out margarine and it's still awesome! Thanks!
    For those who find it too hard to peel: microwave the squash for approximately 2 minutes first to soften it. - 10/13/09

    One of my favorite vegetables! I use Splenda Brown Sugar and I Can't Believe It's Not Butter". I buy the squash already peeled and cubed at Whole Foods. Makes enough for 5 meals. - 5/18/09

    Love this food. I usually use sweet n low and "I can't believe it's not butter" spray for my portion. I prefer it over mashed potatoes. Same thing can be done with acorn squash - 3/3/09

    Next time I will try this with a different type of squash. Butternut squash was extremely hard to peel, but at least I got two workouts in one day! lol
    Taste was ok, but I'd rather just have broccoli or the easier to make squash and zucchini blend. - 3/24/09
