A new twist on a squash dish! The vegetables can be made 4 hours ahead; just reheat, stir in the pecans, and serve.

I have never cooked a squash in my life and halfway through trying to chop through the darned thing without losing a finger I decided that this was one recipe that I'd never make again. Its just not worth losing a limb over, you know? But after the dust had settled and I had my first bite of this amazing concoction, I had to change my mind. THIS IS DEFINITELY WORTH LOSING A FINGER. Maybe even two. This was absolutely delicious! I highly recommend following the recipe and using toasted pecans, fresh parsley, and butter - you won't regret it. Thank you, Christine L.!!!!

This was a great recipe. I have only tasted "sweet" squash recipes before, and didn't really like them. I cut the butternut in half and put a little butter, olive oil, and s&p on and baked at 400 for about 30 minutes. This made it very easy to peel and cube. Then added to the onions etc. and just sauteed til totally tender. Delicious.

This recipe was very easy and amazing. I added a little bit of ground ginger and ground coriander to the butter before cooking the onions. Also, I recommend serving this with freshly grated cheese on top. I used asiago and parmesan.
