Baked Maple Butternut Squash

Introduction

Very yummy! Not low-cal or low-sugar, but as a delicacy once in a while, especially during fall and winter months when these squash are at their peak, this is a real treat! To save on prep time, I "cheat" and buy fresh butternut squash already cubed and packaged from my local grocery store. :o) The sodium content figured out by the recipe calculator is definitely wrong. Someone incorrectly listed 4 cups of butternut squash as having almost 2,000 mg of sodium when 4 cups has only 24 mg! The correct sodium content in this recipe is less than 50 mg per serving!
