“This is a very simple side dish of butternut squash flavored with thyme that can go with anything! You can also think of it as a great substitute for a starch. It only takes a little bit of flavorful cheese to bring out the flavor of the squash!” - by kris

However, I thought the flavor w..." See moreas nice and I liked the texture that roasting gave to it. I myself did not find it to be overly sweet and even my husband who doesn't generally like any kind of squash said it was okay. The hardest part of this recipe was peeling and chopping the squash; I might get the pre-chopped stuff they have at the store next time."
