  1. Place pecans on an ungreased baking sheet. Toast at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 5 to 8 minutes.
  2. Melt butter in a large, heavy skillet over low heat; add onion, and saute until very tender, about 15 minutes. Stir in squash, and cover. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until squash is tender but still holds its shape, about 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Stir in half the pecans and half the parsley. Transfer mixture to a serving bowl. Sprinkle with remaining pecans and parsley to serve.

I made some health-conscious changes (margarine instead of butter, fewer nuts), added some dried cranberries for color and texture, coarsely chopped my onion, sprinkled on a light dusting of cin...

Delicious! Peel with a vegetable peeler for ease, forget nuking in the micro, it makes the squash too smooshy. Don't fiddle with the seasonings, it's perfect the way it is!!!

Am absolute hit for potlucks! I made it twice, and have always gotten many compliments. My changes on the basic recipe: olive oil for butter -- as most people on those potlucks were vegan; I ...

Added apple cider while simmering. gave it a whole new tase and was just wonderful. Served it for Thanksgiving. My guest couldn't get enough. Will definitely make this again.

Excellently memorable. Hubs and I travel extensively which means we eat in many, many restaurants all over the country. I can say with experience that most restaurants don't take the extra steps...

Using an acorn squash instead, I baked it so that the flesh was soft, and therefore, the dish was more of a squash mash. I added dried cranberries on someone else's recommendation, and I think i...
