Excellent. All of my children loved it including my picky 13 y/o and 4 y/o boys who don't like squash. I didn't have any rum so I substituted 1 1/2 tsp rum extract which is less than the recommended substitution. However, I did not want it to be overpowering for the kids. They are already requesting I make it again.

I add some cranberries to enhance the color the dish. This is an easy prepared dish. It tastes sweet, especially good when eat with salty foods. I love its simple and original taste of butternut squash.

This is a great way to prepare butternut squash. We added cranberries also. And I didn't have any dark room, so we used light room and it still came out good.
