Butternut Squash with Browned Butter

Total time: 25 minutes
     The salty Browned Butter is the perfect foil to the sweet squash.

Butternut Squash with Browned Butter Ingredients:


Note:  To clean butternut squash first peel it, using a potato/vegetable peeler.  If it's large (typically) cut it in half between the 'neck' and 'bowl' ends.  Then cut those in half the 'long' way.  Scoop the seeds out of the round end and discard.  I use the neck end for uniform pieces and the bowl end for soups and smaller pieces.
