I got this recipe from a relative years ago. Delicious, colorful squash is baked with a crunchy Parmesan cheese topping. It's excellent -- please try it!

So sorry for a low rating but we just didn't like this. Butternut is my favorite squash and this wasn't a recipe for us. I omitted onion and used less mayo as others stated and used 1 cup crackers and 6 T parmesan. I do have an easier way to peel butternut squash for all you lovers out there. Wash and pat dry your squash. Take a fork and pierce the skin many times all around. Place in microwave and nuke for 8 to 10 minutes. Depending on size. Remove using a pot holder because it will be extremely hot. Let cool a few minutes before peeling, it's easier to slice too, it works great! Then procede with whatever recipe your making. Hope this helps.

The recipe is a good start but needs some modifications. I did the following: 1. Don't add the onions. They don't fit in this recipe. 2. Replace the mayonnaise with vanilla yogurt and make it slightly less than 1/2 cup. You could also add a teaspoon of vanilla extract. 3. Replace the saltine crackers with Graham crackers The result is a sweet, vanilla flavored dish that lets the natural butternut squash flavor come through!

My family absolutely detests squash, but I love it, AND it's good for you.. so here I went, and tried yet another squash recipe.. *you should have seen the look in my husbands eyes*... and to top it off I didn't realize that the friends we had over for dinner also disliked squash.. well.. they all tried it just to please me... and they LOVED IT! I didn't use the FULL amount of mayo, just cause someone said they thought it was too much.. but OH MY! yummy! Nice for haters and lovers of squash.. definately a winner! THANKS!
